Professor Sarah Green


Sarah is Professor of Private Law at the University of Bristol.  She likes to read, write and talk about Tort, Property, Contract and Criminal Law and is currently working on virtual currencies, blockchain issues surrounding intermediated securities, smart contracts, sale of goods law as applicable to digitised assets, and wage theft.  She also keeps her hand in with negligence issues, and causation in particular.  Should you want her to speak or produce some form of text on any of these issues, or if you are interested in doctoral work in these areas, Sarah is usually pretty happy to hear from you.  Especially if it involves travel to somewhere sunny and with great food.

Sarah has written books on the Tort of Conversion and Causation in Negligence.  She has also written in various journals and edited volumes on a wide range of tort, contract and property issues, and has peddled her opinion at several national and international conferences.  She really enjoys doing these things.

Sarah joined Bristol Law School in 2017.  Prior to that, she was Professor of the Law of Obligations at the University of Oxford, and, before that, a lecturer at the University of Birmingham.  She gained her undergraduate and postgradute degrees from the University of Oxford (Balliol College and Said Business School).  In her previous professional life, she was a management consultant, working for Accenture in London and Dublin.

Sarah is also Articles Editor for the Oxford Journal of Legal Studies.
