Professor Hugh Collins

Quondam Fellow since 2019

My research interests lie in three main fields: employment law, contract and commercial law, and legal theory. In the field of employment law, a current particular interest concerns the application of human rights principles to the workplace and the employment relation. In relation to contract law, the development of European Community contract law has been a particular interest in recent years. In a combination of legal theory and commercial law, another focus of my research is in the idea of networks as a hybrid form of business organisation that is insufficiently recognised and accommodated by the law.'
