Alexander Georgiou

Examination Fellow, All Souls College

Biography

Alexander Georgiou is an Examination Fellow at All Souls College. His research spans philosophical and doctrinal concepts in private law. His doctoral thesis is a two-part inquiry into the law of remedies: the first part develops a philosophical account of bilateral and trilateral remedial relationships (i.e., of the interpersonal and political morality of remedies); the second examines the positive law in light of that account. Beyond his doctoral work, Alex takes a broad interest in the laws of contract, tort, trusts, and unjust enrichment, as well as wider questions of moral and political philosophy in the context of the law and civil justice systems. He is also particularly interested in the intersection of linguistics and law.

Alex read for the BA in Jurisprudence (2014-2017) at Brasenose College, Oxford, for which he received the Martin Wronker Prize for the best performance in FHS. Following his undergraduate studies, he returned to Brasenose to read for the Bachelor of Civil Law (2018-2019), and was then appointed a Lecturer in Law (2019) before taking up his current position.

Alex currently offers undergraduate tutorials in contract, tort, and trusts law, and teaches the Commercial Remedies and Unjust Enrichment options on the BCL. He is also an Editor of the Oxford University Commonwealth Law Journal and a Convenor of the Obligations Discussion Group.
