Biography

As a researcher, writing about contracts and the common law, legal theory, bioethics, and the regulation of technology, Professor Brownsword's work is known around the world. Although most of his work has been published in the United Kingdom, he has also published papers in Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Singapore, and the United States.

For more than twenty years, Professor Brownsword's has collaborated with Professor Deryck Beyleveld in developing a distinctive morally-driven approach to law. The foundations of this approach are set out in Law as a Moral Judgment (1986) and it is taken forward in Human Dignity in Bioethics and Biolaw (2001) and Consent in the Law (2007).

In the area of Contracts, Professor Brownsword has published a new edition of his overview of contracts, Contract Law: Themes for the Twenty-First Century (2006, OUP) and he is working on a Chitty supplementary volume on exclusion clauses.

In the area of regulation and technology, he published the following two books in 2008; Rights, Regulation and the Technological Revolution and Regulating Technologies (the latter co-edited with Professor Karen Yeung).
