History Project Probes Moseley Enigma

Events from 50 years ago

Research into the history of the Aberystwyth Law School is casting interesting light on one of its former, though now not so well remembered, members of staff. Hywel Moseley taught in the Department in the early 1960s and was one of the Professors of Law from 1970 until 1982, and  de facto joint Head of Department along with John Andrews from 1970 until 1973. Yet his role in the University has probably not been well understood, as the present research is now starting to show. Sadly Hywel Moseley died early in June of this year, oddly something which has not been formally noted in any way by the University.
