Mr. Dara Foody
|Member of the Durham Law School|
Dara is a Master of Jurisprudence (MJur) candidate and Part time Tutor of Land Law at Durham Law School. As well as obtaining a First Class Law (LLB) Degree from Durham University in Summer 2022, he was awarded the Monckton Chambers Prize for Competition Law. Moreover, he is a recipient of the Durham Law School Master of Jurisprudence Studentship. Dara has a particular interest in Property Law and acts as the Secretary of Durham Tenants’ Union. He has also represented the University in external mooting competitions (namely the Landmark Chambers’ Property Moot and the Helga Pedersen Moot Court Competition) and currently serves as the Vice President of Durham University Mooting Society.
Dara’s research focuses on Property Law, namely the rectification of the Land Register (which is governed by Schedule 4 of the Land Registration Act 2002). He is exploring how ‘mistake’ – which is a key pre-requisite for rectification –should be defined. He will also evaluate whether it would be desirable to develop a statutory definition, in light of conflicting case law. He is supervised by Chris Bevan (primary) and Andy Hayward (secondary).
