Reader of Commercial Law, Queen's University Belfast

Dr Victoria Barnes is Reader of Commercial Law at Queen's University Belfast. Her research examines contract, commercial and corporate law from transnational, comparative and interdisciplinary perspectives.

She has published around 40 journal articles and book chapters on these themes.
