Dr Stephen Bogle
- Senior Lecturer in Private Law (School of Law)
Stephen joined the School in 2014. He has an MA in Philosophy (University of Edinburgh, 2005), an LLB (University of Strathclyde, 2007), an LLM by Research (University of Edinburgh, 2012), and a PhD in Law (University of Edinburgh, 2016). He is a qualified (non-practising) solicitor in Scotland (2010). He teaches delict, contract, and international sales law.
My principal research lies in the field of obligations. Specifically, I am interested in doctrinal and theoretical approaches to the law of obligations and private law more generally. I have a general interest in intellectual history, particularly relating to law and legal thinking during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Amongst other things, I have recently finished a book that focuses on the contractual thought of James Dalrymple, Viscount Stair (1619-1695). Anyone interested in pursuing postgraduate research in these areas is very welcome to contact me.
