Professor Alastair Mullis


I am a graduate of King’s College London (LLB, 1984) and Downing College Cambridge (LLM, 1985). Prior to joining Leeds, I held positions at King’s College London (1989-1999) and the University of East Anglia (1999-2013) where I was Dean and Head of the Law School for eight years.

Research interests

My research interests lie in the fields of tort law, especially defamation and related wrongs, media law and aspects of international commercial law. I am the joint general editor (with HHJ Richard Parkes QC) of Gatley on Libel and Slander (12th edition and supplements) and was previously general editor (with Cameron Doley) of Carter-Ruck on Libel and Privacy and the author of the chapters on the English law of defamation. I am also the author of books on the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the law of torts and have written several articles on these and other subjects.
