Durham Law School


Mr Christopher Lloyd

Teaching Fellow in Durham Law School


Chris Lloyd joins Durham Law School in 2011 as a Teaching Fellow in Criminal Law and is a final year Doctoral Student at The School of Law, Birkbeck College, University of London. He holds an LLB (Hons) from the University of Kent, and was previously a Sessional Lecturer for 3 years at Birkbeck College, where he taught Criminal Law (LLB and LLM) and Legal Practice.

Current Research

Chris' research interests largely stem from the thought of the prominent late French philosopher Jacques Derrida and so encompass critical legal theory, deconstruction, philosophy of language and critical aspects of criminal law. Chris' Ph.D thesis focuses on the intersection between the frameworks of socio-legal studies and critical legal studies within criminal law, and uses the work of Derrida to unveil a critical 'autoimmunity' in the mechanisms of criminal law.
