Professor David Campbell
Chair of International Business Law
I was educated at Cardiff University (BSc (Econ) 1980), the University of Michigan School of Law (LLM 1985), and and the University of Edinburgh (PhD 1985).
I am a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.
I am currently Professor of International Business Law in the School of Law, University of Leeds, UK.
Scholarly and Research Interests
My main current research interests are in remedies for non-performance of contractual obligations and in regulatory theory, and particularly in the development of a 'non-Chicagoan' law and economics of these subjects.
I am currently working on a book which restates the relational theory of contract and, with Matthias Klaes, a book on Coase's critique of intervention.
Since 1985, I have taught at a number of British universities and in Australia, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Spain and the USA.
I would be happy to consider potential PhD proposals in the fields of ...
