Jonathan Morgan read Jurisprudence at Oxford, later moving to Corpus Christi College, Cambridge to write his PhD thesis “In defence of freedom of contract”. He was previously a lecturer in English Law at Warsaw University and maintains links with legal education in Central and Eastern Europe as a trustee of the charity Juris Angliae Scientia Ltd. He held tutorial fellowships at Christ’s College, Cambridge and St Catherine’s College, Oxford before returning to Corpus as a Fellow in 2012.

His article “Tort, Insurance and Incoherence” won the Wedderburn Prize in 2004 (awarded to “a contribution to that year’s volume which is exemplary of the type of scholarship that The Modern Law Review aims to promote”). His book Contract Law Minimalism: A Formalist Restatement of Commercial Contract Law (CUP 2013) was shortlisted for the 2014 Peter Birks Prize (Society of Legal Scholars).
