A Little About Me ...


I hail from Toronto originally, but have not lived there for many years. From 1997 through 2001 I lived in Brisbane, Australia, where I was a Lecturer in the School of Law at the University of Queensland. I was an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Law at the University of Alberta from July 2001 until July 2003.

I moved to Queen's University in 2003. I am an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Law and I am cross-appointed to the Department of Philosophy.

I have a daughter, Charlotte Emma, born in Brisbane in 2000, and a son, Sam William, born in Edmonton in 2002.

My usual teaching subjects are Contract Law, Advanced Contract Law, Tort Law, and the Law of Remedies. I earned my Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Sydney in 2005. My dissertation, entitled "Promising and Promissory Obligations," was supervised by Dr. Duncan Ivison and examined by T.M. Scanlon (Harvard), D.W. Owens (Sheffield) and R. Benitez (Sydney).

I earned an LL.M. from the University of Toronto in 1995, an LL.B. from Osgoode Hall Law School in 1994 and, prior to that, a B.Sc.in Mathematics from the University of Toronto.
