Professor James Davey is Professor within Southampton Law School at the University of Southampton.
James Davey joined Southampton Law School in 2014 His research and teaching interests lie in contract and commercial law generally. He notably harbours a strong interest in the Law and Economics of insurance, a strong field of study in the US but not generally intensively considered in the UK where insurance law research tends to be centred on contract law.
