My major areas of research are in the fields of the Law of Restitution, the Law of Contract, Equity and trusts and Criminal Law. My work on the Law of Restitution covers all aspects of the subject, but especially the relationship between the law of property, the law of trusts and unjust enrichment. I have written a student textbook on the Principles of Equity and Trusts and have contributed chapters on rescisison to a practitioners' book on termination of contracts. The research I undertake on the Criminal Law focuses on substantive developments in the criminal law, with particular reference to the law of homicide. I also contribute to a leading student textbook on the Criminal Law.
