Prof Sanja Bogojević


Sanja Bogojević read law at King’s College London and Passau Universität (LLB with German Law), and Collège d’Europe (LL.M.) before completing her D.Phil at Corpus Christi College, Oxford. She joined Lady Margaret Hall as Tutorial Fellow and Oxford Law Faculty as Associate Professor in September 2016. This followed five years as senior lecturer at Lund University Law School, Sweden. She has held visiting research positions at the Max Planck Institute for Collective Goods; the New York University School of Law; the University of New South Wales and the UC Berkeley School of Law. She is a Research Fellow at the Institute for European and Comparative Law (IECL) at Oxford and the Analysis Analysis Editor for the Journal of Environmental Law.

Research interests

Bogojević's work explores interlinks and dichotomies between private and private spheres in law. To this end, she works on research projects exploring the role of markets in environmental law, greening of procurement law, as well as the adjudication of environmental rights. Her most recent research examines discourses related to nature and how the ways in which we discuss and define nature impacts environmental regulation, and especially conservation measures.

In 2016 Bogojević was awarded the Nils Klim Prize for outstanding research contribution to environmental law- and emissions trading scholarship.


Professor Bogojević teaches Environmental Law, EU Law, and Constitutional Law at the undergraduate level and the BCL/MJur course Comparative and Global Environmental Law.
