Edward Guntrip joined UEA as a Lecturer in Commercial Law in 2011. He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Western Australia in 2001 graduating with a B.Sc (Geography) and LL.B (Hons). After qualifying as a solicitor in New South Wales and Western Australia, he specialised in commercial litigation with an Australian law firm. In 2005, he completed an LLM in international law at the University of Cambridge before returning to legal practice as a litigation solicitor in London. After deciding to focus on an academic career, he commenced his PhD in 2008 at Brunel University which considers the means by which a human rights based defence might be established in international investment disputes.
Edward’s main areas of interest are international investment law, international arbitration and public international law. He teaches on commercial law modules in addition to the LLM Module International Investment Law. Edward’s current research interests relate to the interaction of international investment law with other fields of public international law.
