Professor Akindemowo has a particular interest in comparative contractual law, given that she has taught Contracts from the perspectives of the US legal system, the English legal system, and the Australian legal system. Her other areas of interest and expertise are Information Technology Law, Internet Contracting, Payment Systems and E-Commerce.
Professor Akindemowo is the author of several articles that have been published in both student-edited, and peer-reviewed journals. She is the author of the first substantive book on IT law to have been published in Australia, and co-author of another on E-Commerce and the Law.[The be the next feature in the Contracts Prof Blog spotlight, send a note to Meredith Miller.]
