Newton Trust Lecturer and Hopkins Parry Fellow, Faculty of Law, University of Cambridge
Amy Goymour is a Lecturer and the Hopkins Parry Fellow in the Faculty of Law, as well as being a Fellow of Downing College. She lectures on Aspects of Obligations, Civil Law and Land Law, as well as supervising on the latter two.
Her current research interests lie primarily in Property Law and, in particular, its interface with other areas of the law, such as Tort, Contract, Unjust Enrichment and Human Rights. Her recent research has examined the ways in which intangible assets (such as contractual rights) should be afforded legal protection to match that conferred on rights over tangible assets (ie land and chattels). She has also developed a particular research interest in the evolving relationship between human rights and our established domestic rules of property. Currently, she is currently working on the effect which forgery and fraud might have on title to registered land.
