Glyndwr University ‘Vampire Professor’ and our whistleblowing client

Vampire expert ‘tasted student’s blood’ after his one of his classes
Emyr Williams (pictured), Senior Lecturer at Wrexham Glyndwr University, north Wales, is alleged to have been spotted sucking the blood off his fingers as the student left the room.

A student confided in Helen Coleman, a PhD student at the time, who reported the Senior Lecturer’s inappropriate behaviour. Rather than address the complaints in the interests of their students’ safety, Glyndwr University chose to ignore Coleman’s whistleblowing.

Georgina Calvert-Lee, who is representing Ms Coleman on behalf of legal firm McAllister Olivarius, said: ‘The students liked her and felt comfortable confiding in her. She was not there when it happened but she was told by a student who had cut herself in one of (Dr Williams’s) classes and had looked over her shoulder at the end of the class that she had seen him lick the blood off his fingers.’

This is one of many reports of strange and inappropriate behaviour regarding Dr Williams which are being laid out by Ms Coleman’s counsel in an ongoing tribunal in Cardiff.”

I will always be grateful for your unwavering support of me. Equally, I will always be grateful for showing me how to find my voice and strength.

To get the result you got you must be as tough with your legal opposites as you are kind and understanding to your clients.

Compared with other law firms I’ve worked with, no one matches the combination that McO has of experience, brilliance, ferocious fighting and deep empathy for their clients.

Because my case could not bear public scrutiny, a very powerful institution used massive financial resources to try to crush me for asking for my disability rights. This was a huge mistake, as they didn’t know that I would obtain McO representation. I couldn’t ask for better representation.
