Celia Wells is professor of law at Cardiff University where she has taught and researched since 1986.

Her research has mainly focused on criminal law, in particular the criminal liability of corporations (Corporations and Criminal Responsibility 1993 (OUP)). Reflecting her interest in issues of risk and blame, Celia Wells has also published Negotiating Tragedy (1995) a study of the law relating to disasters. With Nicola Lacey, she is co-author of Reconstructing Criminal Law (2nd edition 1998), a student text which draws on a wide range of contextual material and adopts an explicitly feminist perspective.
