Dr Anita Purewal

Lecturer in Law (Teaching & Scholarship)

Research Overview

My research interests derive from the fields of property and land law, with particular focus on the sentimental attachments to property and compulsory purchase laws, namely the adequacy of the compensation awarded when homes are compulsorily purchased in the UK.

Beyond property law, my research interests also derive from the field of environmental law, particularly regulatory theory, climate change matters, the regulation of flooding, and the planning of infrastructure developments, such as HS2.

More general research interests derive from the field of equity and trusts, including critical analyses of fiduciary duties, the separation of title, and trustees' duties.
