Adrian Briggs is the Sir Richard Gozney Fellow and Tutor at St Edmund Hall. He has been teaching in Oxford since 1980. His main interest is in private international law, and within that, in questions of civil jurisdiction and the effect of foreign judgments. He spent 15 years as one of the editors of Dicey, Morris and Collins, The Conflict of Laws, but his own perspective on the subject, in its increasingly European guise, is now published as 'Private International Law in English Courts', the first edition of which came out in October 2014. This takes its place alongside his several other books on private international law, of which Civil Jurisdiction and Judgments is the most established. He also practises from chambers in the Temple, and finds that the problems which arise in legal practice provide an endless source of raw material for reflecting on and refining one's understanding of the law.
