Dr Simon Douglas

Roles and subjects

Peter Clarke Fellow and Tutor in Law



Academic Background


Undergraduate at Liverpool University; graduate student at Oxford University where I took the BCL and DPhil.

I have taught outside of Oxford, at the University of Warwick. Within Oxford I was a lecturer at Corpus Christi and a Junior Fellow at Wadham.

Undergraduate Teaching

I teach property law subjects (land law, trusts and personal property) as well as roman law.

Research Interests

My main interests are in property law. I’m particularly interested in the boundaries of the subject, and how we draw a division between property and contract and property and tort.
