Research interests

  • Law


Samuel Williams is a Lecturer at the Dickson Poon School of Law. He is currently writing a book on the philosophical foundations of equitable compensation. The book argues that the label ‘equitable compensation’ is used to refer to multiple different remedies, and demonstrates which of these remedies are and ought to be legally available. The book also contributes to our understanding of the values furthered by trusts law.

His research interests cover remedies, trusts, contract, tort, and private law theory. He has taught courses in commercial remedies, trusts, tort, property, contract, criminal, conflict of laws, and private law theory. His other interests include music, nature, and sports.
