Personal details

LLB (Hons) UZ, BCL (Oxf), LLM (Yale), PhD (Cantab)

I joined Leicester Law School in September 2017. My research interests are in Intellectual Property Law. Within that area, I have examined various aspects of copyright law. My publications have appeared in the International Review of Intellectual Property and Competition Law (IIC), the Journal of the Copyright Society of the USA, the Modern Law Review and the Oxford Journal of Legal Studies. I am currently completing a monograph on copyright in unpublished works for Hart Publishing. I teach Company Law, Comparative Corporate Law and Intellectual Property Law. I am happy to consider PhD proposals within the broader areas of my teaching and research interests.
