Biography

Joyman joined the Law School in August 2021. He holds a PhD in history from Yale University and has submitted his PhD thesis in private law at University College London. He has also studied and taught law at Sciences Po in Paris.

His research interests lie in comparative private law, trust law and property. His doctoral thesis “Structure and Rulemaking in English, Japanese and Quebec Trusts” argues that English express trusts and trusts as found in mixed legal systems are essentially similar, and proposes good faith as a solution to rulemaking challenges.
