Prince Saprai joined the Faculty of Laws as a Lecturer in 2009. Formerly, he was an Assistant Professor at the University of Warwick (2008-2009), and had worked as a Lecturer at Oxford. He also completed his doctorate at Oxford, which was a defence of substantive fairness in contract law.
Prince's main research interests are in private law theory. In particular, he is interested in philosophical puzzles raised by the law of contract and unjust enrichment. He has worked, for example, on the justifiability of defences in contract law, the reasons for restitution in unjust enrichment, the ethical limits of markets, and on how the various braches of private law are differentiated.
