The Centre for Commercial Law presents:


A New Model For Contract Interpretation 


Dr Ryan Catterwell, Lecturer, TC Beirne School of Law, University of Queensland



Dr Catterwell recently completed his doctorate through the University of Sydney. His PhD thesis explains the process of contract interpretation in a logical and structured way.

Dr Catterwell’s research interests include contract theory, legal interpretation, logic and law and technology and law. In broad terms, his research seeks to explain the logic in law by employing a blend of theoretical and empirical methods. Ryan also applies his doctrinal research in exploring the extent to which legal reasoning can be automated.

Prior to joining academia, Dr Catterwell had practised for several years in a litigious, advisory and transactional capacity. He continues to practise as a consultant at a leading global law firm. Since 2013, he has been the associate editor of the Journal of Contract Law. In both his research and his teaching, Ryan brings to bear his commercial and practical experience.
