After a diverse career in a number of industries, and following a brief stint as a commercial litigator, Paul has returned to academia with a principal focus on the concept of the Rule of Law.  Paul is now in the second year of his PhD at the University of Edinburgh, exploring the history of the Rule of Law in the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries. His project sits somewhere between legal theory, legal history, intellectual history, and political philosophy. His broad – somewhat eclectic – project reflects not only his earlier career and his academic background, but also his research interests more generally.  His recent publications include: “[The Rule of Law]” in the US Supreme Court: the Elephant in the Court Room? Hague J Rule Law (2016). doi:10.1007/s40803-016-0030-1; and, Should Entick v. Carrington be on our Rule of Law Radar? Jus Politicum 16 – July 2016.
