Jodi Gardner is a College Lecturer in Contract Law and the Law of Torts at Corpus Christi College. She holds an LLB/B.Int.Rels from Griffith University, an LLM from the Australian National University, a BCL/M.Phil from Magdalen College, Oxford and is currently completing her D.Phil at Corpus Christi College, Oxford.

Jodi started her career as a consumer advocate at the Centre for Credit and Consumer Law in Australia, before qualifying as a solicitor and working at Caxton Legal Centre as a community lawyer specialising in consumer protection. Her D.Phil topic is the regulation of small amount credit (often referred to as 'payday loans'), exploring the role that social minimums can play in determining an appropriate approach to regulating this area of law.
My research centres on credit and debt, focusing specifically on the impact the legal system has on vulnerable borrowers. This cuts across various topics, including contract law, public regulation and the criminal law itself.
