Biography

Jordan is a non-stipendiary lecturer in law and DPhil Candidate at Magdalen College. His college teaching comprises contract and tort law. 

Jordan's DPhil research is tentatively titled Termination Mechanisms in Contract and their Effects: A Comparative Analysis. It is being supervised by Professor Birke Häcker. The project seeks to identify the juristic basis for termination mechanisms in contract and resolve some controversies, including why parties are given the power to terminate following certain kinds of breaches and how, if at all, this relates to other termination mechanisms such as following frustration, or pursuant to an express clause. The project also seeks to examine the effects of termination. While the focus of the project is on explaining termination in English law, it will explore how other legal systems (both common law and civilian) approach termination. 

Jordan is also a co-convenor of the Obligations Discussion Group and an editor of the Oxford University Commonwealth Law Journal

Jordan holds a Bachelor of Laws (Hons I, Medal) and a Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting) from the University of Queensland, and a Bachelor of Civil Law (Dist) from the University of Oxford. Before coming to Oxford he worked as a solicitor at an international law firm and as a Judge's Associate at the High Court of Australia. He has taught corporations law at Australian National University, and worked as a research assistant at the University of Queensland.
