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 has always been 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, was published as Private International Law in English Courts, the first - and, one now supposes, only - edition of which came out in October 2014 and took its place alongside his several other books on private international law, of which Civil Jurisdiction and Judgments is the most established. When the dust settles, and it is possible to see the outlines of private international law after secession from the European Union, it will be time to return to the task of writing monographs on the subject. In the meantime, his Private International Law in Myanmar (published in 2015) and The Law of Contract in Myanmar (jointly written with Andrew Burrows and published in 2017) have been providing an alternative, and absorbing, intellectual challenge. He also practises from chambers in the Temple.
