Biography:

Scott Morrison joined the Middlesex University School of Law in September 2015. His principal research interests deal with capital markets, corporate finance, fixed income securities, structured financial instruments and securitisation, and banking law more broadly; in particular he is currently engaged in research concerning the development and regulation of Islamic finance and investment, and retail banking -- both in the United Kingdom and abroad.

Before being called to the Bar of England and Wales (Gray's Inn) in 2012 he specialised in Middle Eastern and Islamic studies, and politics. Having completed the BA at New York University (1994), and the MA (1997) MPhil (1999) and PhD (2004) at Columbia University in New York City he served as Fellow at the Columbia University Society of Fellows and concurrent Lecturer in the Department of Middle Eastern and Asian Languages and Cultures (MEALAC 2004-2006), and Visiting Assistant Professor in Islamic Studies in the Department of Religion, Columbia University (2006-2007).

Scott has held two US Fulbright Commission Grants. The first supported research in Turkey (2003-2004) and the second teaching and research in the Department of Law at the Maldives College of Higher Education (in Male' 2007-2008). He has also lectured at New York University (autumn 2008), Zayed University (Dubai and Abu Dhabi UAE 2009-2010), and in Japan -- at Akita University (2013-2015) and as Visiting Associate Professor at Keio Law School (spring 2015) in Tokyo.

Funding bodies from which he has secured smaller research grants include: the Social Science Research Council (SSRC), the Institute for Turkish Studies (ITS), the Princeton-American Research Institute in Turkey (ARIT), the American Political Science Association (APSA), the Middle East Studies Association (MESA), the Andrew W Mellon Foundation (for study in Yemen), the Middlebury College School of Arabic (1998), Foreign Language and Area Studies Scholarship (1997) and the Columbia University Presidential Scholarship (1996-1999). He also served as Visiting Research Fellow at the Oxford University Centre for Islamic Studies (2010-2011).
