Dr Jonathan Mukwiri

Associate Professor

Associate Professor in the Durham Law School


Jonathan is an Associate Professor in Corporate Law at Durham Law School. He joined Durham in October 2010. He teaches mainly on the postgraduate taught programme and supervises numerous postgraduate dissertations in broad areas of corporate law and commercial law. He also teaches undergraduates on the Company Law module.

Jonathan's research interests lie primarily in corporate law, especially European corporate law. To date, his work in corporate law has focused on takeover regulation and corporate governance, including the role of shareholders and the protection of minority shareholders. He is the author of the Takeovers and European Legal Framework: A British Perspective (Routledge-Cavendish, 2009), a monograph that provides a detailed understanding of the implementation of the Takeover Directive 2004/25/EC into the UK. He is currently researching on the interaction between free movement of capital and regulation of takeovers in light of the Brexit implications for the UK.

Research Supervision

Jonathan would be delighted to hear from potential PhD students interested in researching any area of corporate law, especially in relation to takeovers, interaction between takeovers and free movement of capital, corporate governance, directors' duties, minority shareholder protection, and corporate social responsibility. His most recent PhD students researched issues in takeovers, mergers, corporate governance, and sale of goods issues related to the Vienna Convention.
