Mr Adam Baker


I am a Lecturer in Property Law, before which I was a Teaching Fellow. I have also previously been the programme leader for the LL.B.


  • Academic Assessment Lead

Research interests

My main research interests are in the areas of land law, trusts and tort law. My more recent research has focussed on the law governing contractual rights to enjoy land, as well as land registration issues. My research is often comparative in nature, analysing the law across different jurisdictions. I have also written about conflicts of interest in the commercial property market.

I provided updates for the most recent edition of Property Law (11th ed, Pearson 2024) by Roger Smith.
