Biography

Joyman joined the Law School in August 2021. He is interested in trusts, property and legal history in a global context. Trained as a common lawyer, he is also interested in law in Japan and in Francophone jurisdictions outside Europe.

Raised in London, Joyman holds a BA 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 before returning to the UK to pursue a career change to law. He earned his LLM and PhD (2022) in private law from University College London, during which he also studied and taught law at Sciences Po in Paris. He has been a visiting scholar at McGill.

Joyman's doctrinal research focuses on comparative trust law. He plans to develop his doctoral thesis “Structure and Rulemaking in English, Japanese and Quebec Trusts” into a monograph on the trust in Japan and Quebec, using an approach based primarily on comparative legal history which nonetheless concerns itself with contemporary questions, such as the reform of law.

Building on his earlier career as a historian, Joyman is interested in property and development in an Afro-Asian context, especially West Africa (Senegal) in comparison with East Asia.
