Professor Peter Edge

Centre Advisory Group

Professor Peter Edge has two principal research interests.

Firstly, the law of small jurisdictions with a common law inheritance, particularly the Isle of Man. His doctoral work at Cambridge University concentrated on the public law of the Isle of Man, including both constitutional and criminal law, and his publications in the area seek to show how the study of Manx law can illuminate issues of broader scholarly concern (for instance, in a study of the Manx Tynwald aimed at informing reforms to the UK House of Lords). .He leads the Small Jurisdiction Service at Oxford Brookes, and has taught on the LLM in Legal Practice since its inception.

Secondly, the interaction of law and religion within the English jurisdiction, but also in transnational law. He is Chair of the Applied Study of Law and Religion Group in the Centre for Legal Research and Policy Studies.
