Dr Johanna Jacques, BA, LLB, MSc, PhD, FHEA
(email at firstname.lastname@example.org)
Johanna’s research expertise is in legal philosophy and trusts law. Johanna joined Durham Law School in 2015 from the University of Warwick School of Law, having previously taught at the LSE and Birkbeck. She holds degrees from SOAS (BA in Arabic), Birkbeck (LLB) and the LSE (MSc in Law, Anthropology and Society; PhD in Law). She is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
Johanna’s research has ranged from the international law theory of Carl Schmitt to the agency of things in trusts law. Her current work focuses on the relation between the trust arrangement as a form of property and the continuous self-accumulation of wealth in society, and she is planning a book that will critically examine the use of the ethics of alterity in theories of justice.
