She focuses on the development of common law doctrine as a force which influenced the evolution of contractual rights and drafting of particular clauses. Victoria Barnes holds a PhD from the University of Reading (2015) and lectured at the University of the West of England (2011-4), University of Reading (2012-5), and Henley Business School (2014-5).
