Professor Rob Cryer

We greatly miss Professor Rob Cryer, who passed away in 2020 at the age of forty-six. We aim to channel this loss, those missings, into an event, and a book, that celebrates his oeuvre, research, mentorship, teaching, insights, idiosyncrasy, laughter, vim, and wit. 

We are planning an eclectic conference that will feature: ‘traditional’ panels; conversations about law, life, and Rob; musings, music, and meditations; and literature and reminiscing. Papers will reflect Rob’s scholarly writing in and from all areas of law, but also his pedagogy; and his distinctive combinations of playfulness, precision, palavering…

The conference will be held in University House on June 29-30, 2023. Further details on the conference, including the programme, will be published here on the conference website in due course.
