Topic areas


Oxford University Press is pleased to announce a call for papers for Volume IV of Oxford Studies in Private Law Theory, edited by Paul Miller (Notre Dame) and John Oberdiek (Rutgers).

Oxford Studies in Private Law Theory is a biennial forum for some of the best new work in private law theory by scholars from around the world. The series publishes exceptional work exploring the full range of private law domains and doctrines—including contract, property, tort, and fiduciary law, as well as equity, unjust enrichment, and remedies—and employing diverse methodological approaches to individual areas of private law as well as to private law in general. 

Submissions should be approximately 12,000 words, inclusive of footnotes. The deadline for submission is 15 January 2025.

All papers provisionally accepted will be workshopped at the National University of Singapore in August 2025. The Rutgers Institute for Law and Philosophy and the National University of Singapore will cover the expense of participants’ travel and accommodation. Thanks to the generosity of the Notre Dame Program on Private Law, accepted papers will be published open access by OUP. 

To submit a paper for consideration, please email both John Oberdiek at [email protected] and Paul Miller at [email protected].
