Alexander Georgiou

Examination Fellow, All Souls College


Alexander Georgiou is an Examination Fellow at All Souls College. His research spans doctrinal and philosophical concepts in private law. His doctoral thesis explores why legal systems provide remedies and what this might tell us about the kinds of remedies we should, and do, have. Beyond his doctoral work, he takes a broad interest in the laws of contract, tort, trusts, and unjust enrichment. He is also interested in the intersection of linguistics and law as well as wider questions of moral and political philosophy in the context of the law and civil justice systems. 

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) as a Temple Chambers scholar, 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.
