BA (Hons 1), LLB (Hons 1) (Qld) BPhil (Oxon)

Robert completed degrees in law and literature at the University of Queensland. Since arriving in Oxford his interests have turned to moral and legal philosophy. His current doctoral research examines the structure of our morally important relationships and their constitutive obligations in order to better understand certain relational features of the law. In particular, he is interested in what kind of relationship, if any, might exist between those legal officials who are responsible for making the law, and the rest of us who are supposed to obey it. 

Robert is a co-convenor of the Jurisprudence Discussion Group.
