Dr Alex Green
LLB (UCL), LLM (UCL), PhD (UCL)
I joined York Law School in 2021, having previously worked as a Senior Lecturer at Leeds Beckett University and an Assistant Professor at the University of Hong Kong. In addition, I have held visiting positions at the University of Leeds and the University of Cambridge.
I have an LLB in Law from University College London, as well as an LLM in Human Rights Law and a PhD in Public International Law from the same institution, the latter of which was awarded in 2019. My research interests encompass legal and political theory, ethical and moral philosophy, public international law, private law theory, and human rights.
My more theoretical scholarship encompasses legal and political philosophy, broadly construed. Doctrinally, my main areas of interest are the more ‘constitutional’ elements of public international law, including the law of statehood, the sources of international law, and the principle of sovereign equality.
At present, I have three ongoing strands of research:
Academic Associate and Academic Associate Panel Chair, 23 Essex Street Chambers
‘Asia-Pacific Journal on Human Rights and the Law’ (editor)
Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn
Society of Legal Scholars
Socio-Legal Studies Association
Visiting Scholar, Centre for Law and Social Justice, University of Leeds (2019-2021)
Visiting Fellow, Lauterpacht Centre for International Law, University of Cambridge (2019)
