Alexander Georgiou

Examination Fellow since 2019
My research spans philosophical and doctrinal concepts in private law. My doctoral thesis explores the philosophical concepts which underpin 'performance-based remedies', as well as the scope and availability of those remedies in the positive law. Beyond my doctoral work, I take a broad interest in the laws of contract, tort, trusts, and unjust enrichment, and am also interested in wider questions of moral and political philosophy in the context of the law and civil justice systems.
