Law and Obligations

Investigating how the rules and principles of law respond to innovations.

Our research

We interrogate ways well-established rules and principles of law respond to modern challenges and innovations. We look at the ways in which legal obligations are shaped by societal changes.

Our work

Our most recent work includes research into:

  • conceptualisations of strict liability in tort
  • the obligations of employers in the context of workplace bullying
  • the obligations of hospitals towards their patients
  • the concept of safe spaces in modern societies
  • the changing nature of equity and fiduciary duties
  • tracing in property law
  • legal imagination and the courts
We look at obligations of employers to protect staff against workplace bullying.
