Peter Birks (William Swadling, 9 Jul 2004) (2573 words)
It was the Roman law of quasi-contract that led Birks to the English law of restitution.
The strain of travelling - and his respect for the excellence of its law faculty - led to him accepting a chair at the University of Southampton, but a year later in 1989 he was appointed to the regius chair of civil law at Oxford and to a fellowship at All Souls.
He was a visiting professor at the Australian National University in 1989, at the University of Nijmegen between 1994 and 1996, at the University of Texas in 2001 and at the University of Leiden in 2003.
