Research

Jordan’s research focuses on all areas of private law and he is currently working on two main projects.

The first is his DPhil, which is on the discharge of contractual obligations. The thesis is concerned with the nature of, and justification for, the discharge of contractual obligations for reasons other than performance of the obligations.

The second is a book on the law of tracing to be published by Federation Press. Jordan (along with a colleague) is currently finalising the draft manuscript for publication in 2021.
