Biography

Jordan is a Stipendiary Lecturer in Law at St Hilda's College, Oxford and from October 2021 will take up a Supernumerary Teaching Fellowship in Law at St John's College Oxford. He is also a DPhil Candidate at Magdalen College, Oxford. He teaches all areas of private law, including contract, trusts, and land at the undergraduate level, and Commercial Remedies and Restitution of Unjust Enrichment on the BCL/MJur. 

Jordan's doctoral research is on the discharge of contractual obligations. The thesis, which is being supervised by Professor Birke Häcker, is concerned with the nature of, and justification for, the discharge of contractual obligations in cases other than performance (i.e. following breach, frustration, and common mistake).

In addition to his DPhil, Jordan researches and publishes on all areas of private law. In particular, he is the co-author of the forthcoming monograph: Mohammud Jaamae Hafeez-Baig and Jordan English, The Law of Tracing (Federation Press, 2021) (available for pre-order). 

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 an Associate to Justice James Edelman at the High Court of Australia. 

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