Biography

Julius is an Equity lawyer, with a specific interest in Equity’s role within the law of obligations. His research focuses on the interaction between the law of fiduciaries (and the law of undue influence), with the laws of contract, tort, and unjust enrichment. He has published papers on agency, fiduciary misfeasance, and constructive trusts. His ongoing research relates to the nature of the trust in Rochefoucauld v Boustead, and, more generally, to the role of the ‘good man’ theory of Equity in modern English law.

Born and raised in North London, Julius received his BA from the University of Oxford in 2012 and his LLM from UCL in 2013. In 2014 he was called to the Bar at Lincoln’s Inn. Between 2014 and 2018, he worked as a Teaching Fellow at UCL, where – at various times – he taught contract law, tort law, commercial law, trusts law, and tax law. He also lectured on the commercial law course, and to incoming postgraduate students as part of their introductory programme. 

In 2016, as a Peter Birks Memorial Scholar, Julius began writing his thesis – also at UCL – under the supervision of Professors Ben McFarlane and Charles Mitchell. The purpose of his PhD is to demystify some of the confusion which currently saturates our understanding of the modern laws of breach of fiduciary duty and undue influence, by explaining that the way in which the courts have understood these two areas of law has changed over time.
