Teaching

I teach Roman Introduction to Private Law (Mods), Contract (FHS), Tort (FHS) and Conflict of Laws (BCL/MJur)

About me

I studied law (MA, BCL) in Oxford (at St Edmund Hall), before practising as a solicitor and consultant with Clifford Chance. Before joining St Catherine's in September 2013, I combined legal practice with my role as Professor in Private International Law at Sydney Law School.

I am a Visiting Fellow at the British Institute of International and Comparative Law, a Fellow of the European Law Institute, and an Associate Member of the International Academy of Comparative Law. I am also a member of the Mance Committee (the UK Government's advisory body on private international law matters), .

Research

My main area of research is private international law (conflict of laws), with a focus on the European Union instruments in civil and commercial matters. I also undertake research within the law of obligations (tort, contract).

My recent work has focussed, variously, on the implications of Brexit, the historical development of rules governing adjudicatory jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments, private international law aspects of crypto-currencies and the interface between public and private law in cross-border cases.

For a list of my publications, please see here.

Graduate supervision

I supervise MPhil and DPhil students, and I am very happy to speak to prospective graduate students working in the area of private international law with a view to developing a proposal for a thesis.

St Catherine's, Oxford: A Pen Portrait

We are delighted to announce the publication of St Catherine's, Oxford: A Pen Portrait, a dynamic and lively compilation: a memorable tribute to St Catherine’s past and present.

The book starts with the beginnings of the Society in the nineteenth century, and depicts the College – the result of Alan Bullock’s vision and embodied in Arne Jacobsen’s architectural masterpiece – from its foundation in 1962 to its current role as a prominent and distinguished part of Oxford University. The book also includes insightful overviews of student life across the years, academic activities, music and the arts, drama, the Cameron Mackintosh Visiting Professorship, and sport. A major part of the book also describes the origins of Jacobsen’s design for the college, its subsequent execution, and the interplay between the characters who helped bring it to fruition.

St Catherine’s is, as ever, a busy and thriving community and our hope is that its distinctive ethos and spirit, created by junior and senior members all those years ago, inspiring succeeding generations of students and dons alike, has been captured vividly in this book.
