About Brian Christopher Jones

Currently I'm a Lecturer in Public Law at Liverpool Hope University, and teach the following courses: Public Law; Sentencing; and Criminal Justice Process. Previously I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Institutum Iurisprudentiae, Academia Sinica, Taiwan's highest academic research institution.
My research interests are in British, American and Taiwanese public law, comparative public law, socio-legal studies, constitutional theory, civil disobedience, and law and technology. Currently I’m analysing the effects of political and legal constitutionalism, the implications of constitutional idolatry and judicial supremacy, and the interaction between social media and the law. I currently have an edited collection under contract with Routledge about the Taiwan Sunflower and Hong Kong Umbrella Movements. Additionally, I have a monograph under contract with Springer entitled: 'The Ascent of the Evocative Statute'.
I hold a PhD in Law from the University of Stirling; an MA in Criminology, Law & Society from George Mason University, and a BA in Psychology from the University of Missouri-Columbia. I am also a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I can be contacted at:
