Biography

Raised in London, Joyman holds a BA (starred double first) in history from Cambridge and a PhD in history from Yale University (2013). He taught for three years as an assistant professor in the US. He received his GDL from City University and LLM in international commercial law and PhD (2022) in private law from University College London. He spent a year at Sciences Po in Paris, and has been a visiting scholar at McGill University in Canada. He will be a visiting scholar at National Taiwan University as a Taiwan Fellow and the University of Tokyo in 2024. He has also undertaken a shorter visit to Université Cheikh Anta Diop, Senegal.

Research interests

Joyman's interests focus on private law, specifically trusts and property, comparative law, legal history and decolonial law. His primary research countries are located in Northeast Asia and Francophone sub-Saharan Africa.

Joyman is writing a monograph entitled The Law of Express Trusts in Japan and Taiwan: Comparisons with Common Law and Quebec, on the basis of his doctoral thesis at UCL. As he argues in a chapter contribution in Modern Studies in Property Law, Volume 12, these trusts go further than European civil law trusts by providing elaborate mechanisms for express trusts to perform their role as agreement-based institutions designed to deliver flexibility to property owners. 

Another of Joyman’s interests concerns private law in Africa, with an initial focus on land in Senegambia/Senegal. 

In addition to English, Joyman uses Japanese, French and Chinese in his work.
