Krzysztof is a DPhil student at the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies and New College.

His doctoral research examines the evolution of property discourses, and their effects on property relationships in land, in a post-communist society by looking at the case study of property restitution in Warsaw (1990–2021). His project is co-supervised by Professors Antonia Layard and Bettina Lange.

Krzysztof’s research interests are mainly in land law, with a particular focus on public, social, environmental, and economic limits of private property rights. He is also interested in socio-legal theories of property and ownership as well as legal history and theory of the idea of ‘property’.

Prior to joining the Centre, Krzysztof completed a Bachelor of Civil Law (with Distinction) at the University of Oxford, St Peter’s College and a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Law and Sociology at the University of Warwick.
