Profile
Paul Mitchell joined UCL as Professor of Laws in 2010, and has previously taught at King's College London, Queen Mary University of London, and Oxford University.

Research
Paul's main research interests are the law of tort, contract and unjust enrichment. Much of his work is historical, exploring how and why the law developed to its present form. He is also interested in Roman law and the history of legal education. His current research projects include co-authoring the eighth edition of Goff and Jones on the Law of Restitution (with Charles Mitchell, also UCL), and writing an essay on Penn v Lord Baltimore for a conference on Landmark Cases in Equity (to be held at UCL in April 2011). His longer term research project is a monograph on the history of the law of tort from 1900 to 1950.
