Biography

Joyman joined the Law School in August 2021. His research focuses on trusts, property and legal history in a comparative and global context.

Joyman plans to develop his doctoral thesis “Structure and Rulemaking in English, Japanese and Quebec Trusts” (UCL 2022) into a monograph. Drawing on comparative legal history as well as the idea of “oxymoronic comparative law”, he argues for the reform of Japanese trust law, where private trusts are becoming more important in light of the ageing society. He contends that civil law systems interested in making an effective use of trusts end up adopting a structure which is similar to English express trusts.

He is also interested in the legal history of property and development in West Africa, focusing initially on Senegal.

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. He received his GDL from City University and LLM in international commercial law and PhD (2022) in private law from UCL. He also spent a year at Sciences Po in Paris, and has been a visiting scholar at McGill University.
