City don's work for children earns charity recognition.

A UNIVERSITY academic has been recognised by a Welsh children's charity for his work in supporting socially excluded groups.

Professor Luke Clements, of Cardiff University, has been appointed the inaugural Cerebra Professor of Law.

Based in Carmarthen, Cerebra strives to improve the lives of children with neuro-developmental disorders and brain injury. It does so through a range of research, education and direct, ongoing support.

Research led by Prof Clements will focus on delivering legal rights and entitlements to children with neuro-developmental disorders and their families It aims to provide support for disabled children, their families and advisers, who may be encountering difficulties with statutory agencies in relation to the provision of health, social care and education.

It builds on the thriving pro bono work Cardiff Law School is doing in the same field.
