Associate Professor Barry Allan

staff_large_allan_barry

Barry joined the Faculty in April 2002 after spending a number of years in practise as a litigator and then eight years teaching various business law papers at Massey University. This has led to Barry having a wide field of legal experience. He is actually a graduate of this University and has more recently obtained his Masters in Law from Victoria University. Along the way, he has picked up a BA in English Literature from Massey and hopes to progress to graduate study in that as well as Philosophy now that he is at Otago.

His present teaching responsibilities are in the Law of Contract and Law of Torts courses. Barry finds it difficult to limit himself to a specific area of legal research, but is most actively involved in the areas of credit law and secured transactions.
