Anne Davies is Fellow and Tutor in Law at Brasenose College. She was awarded the title of Reader in Public Law in 2006. She studied at Oxford, completing the BA (winning the Gibbs and Martin Wronker Prizes) and the D.Phil. She was a Prize Fellow at All Souls College from 1995 to 2001, and a Visiting Scholar at the University of Michigan in 1999. Dr Davies is the author of three books and numerous articles in the fields of public law and labour law.
In public law, she has a particular interest in government contracts. Her D.Phil. thesis examined the phenomenon of contractualisation in the NHS from a public law perspective. She developed this research into a book entitled Accountability: A Public Law Analysis of Government By Contract which was published by Oxford University Press in 2001. She has also written articles on the regulation of the medical profession and on accountability and autonomy issues in the NHS. She has recently been working on a wider examination of government procurement and public/private partnership contracts from a public law perspective. Her book The Public Law of Government Contracts was published by OUP in September 2008.
In labour law, Dr Davies is the author of Perspectives on Labour Law, published by Cambridge University Press in the Law in Context series in 2004. This book examines a selection of topics in English labour law in the light of international human rights instruments and various economic arguments. The second edition will be published sometime in 2009. Her interests in the labour law field are wide-ranging, encompassing international, European and domestic law.
