Dr Qi Zhou (George)

Associate Professor of Law

I joined the University of Leeds as an Associate Professor of Law in June 2013. Before that, I was a lecturer in law at the University of Sheffield. I am a qualified attorney in China, a Distinguish Visiting Fellow in Law and Economics at The Rotterdam Institute of Law and Economics, Erasmus University of Rotterdam, and a Visiting Professor at Xi An Jiao Tong University, China. 

I studied law at the Chinese University of Politics, the University of Bournemouth and the University of Manchester.

Research Interests

My research interests lie in the fields of contract law, regulation and law and economics. I am particularly interested in studying the regulatory features of different types of legal instruments.

PhD Supervision

I welcome applications from candidates in my research area, in particular proposals with a law and economic perspective.
