Rory is reading for the MPhil in Law. His current research is in private law, and he also has interests in administrative law and legal history.
Rory's MPhil is about subrogation: a legal doctrine which allows one person to pretend to be another, and rely on the latter's rights against a third party. In English law, orthodoxy says that non-contractual subrogation is a remedy for unjust enrichment. Rory's MPhil challenges that view. He is co-supervised by Prof Robert Stevens and Dr Frederick Wilmot-Smith.
