Biography

I joined the School of Law in 2014. I have an MA in Philosophy (University of Edinburgh, 2005), an LLB (University of Strathclyde, 2007), an LLM by Research (University of Edinburgh, 2012), and a Ph.D. in Law (University of Edinburgh, 2016). I qualified a solicitor in Scotland in 2010 (but no longer practice). In general, I teach delict, contract, property, international sales law, and the history of legal thought.

Research interests

Put broadly, I am interested in obligations; that is, what we owe to each other. Specifically, my focus is on the law of obligations (including, contract and delict/tort).

I have written about good faith in contract law, mental health disorders and civil responsibility, the liability of public authorities for negligent acts, the vicarious liability of employers for the acts of their employees, the reform of the law of defamation in Scotland, and the interpretation of contracts. 

I'm fascinated by intellectual history and how it helps us understand the ideas, practices, and institutions that shape the contemporary world. I have written about the role of autonomy within the development of contract law in Europe, the legal response to the South Sea bubble crisis, and how history can help shape contemporary theories of private law.

Over the last 10 years, I have been particularly concerned with how the law of contract developed in Europe during the early modern period and into the eighteenth century. The main output of this is my monograph, Contract before the Enlightenment: the ideas of Viscount Stair, 1619-1695 (OUP, 2023). This book explores the development of contractual thought in Scotland in relation to the intellectual context of seventeenth-century Scotland.
