Biography

MPhil, BCL (Oxford); LLB (NUS)

Tim's research lies primarily within private law and commercial law. In addition to its doctrine he maintains a wider general interest in its philosophy - in particular, its concepts and their justifications. He is currently writing his DPhil on the idea of standing in private law, under the co-supervision of Professors Robert Stevens and Sandy Steel. Within private law his research has thus far focussed on the laws of contract, unjust enrichment, and trusts. He is also especially interested in remedial issues, and has taught Commercial Remedies on the BCL. Tim read for his LLB at the National University of Singapore. Upon graduating in 2014 he was appointed an inaugural Sheridan Fellow, lecturing and tutoring contract law for a year. He then arrived at Oxford as a Clarendon Scholar in 2015, where he read for the BCL and MPhil.
