Personal profile


Dr Sagi Peari joined UWA Law School in 2018. Sagi researches and teaches within private law, commercial law, international law and their intersections. He has published in leading US, Canadian, European and Australian legal journals. Sagi holds a SJD degree from the University of Toronto, where he held the prestigious Joseph-Armand Bombardier and Connaught Doctoral Fellowships. In addition, he was a recipient of a Hauser Global Scholar Fellowship at New York University, a Connection Grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, and has been recognised for his academic contribution by the American Society of International Law. Most recently, the Corporate Law Teachers Association has awarded Sagi the 2018 best paper prize in corporate law and corporate governance, for his article titled "Corporations and Choice-of-Law".

In May 2018 he published The Foundation of Choice of Law: Choice & Equality (Oxford University Press). This book tackles basic questions of international private interactions and international commercial dealings, delves into the fundamentals of such notions as private law theory and international human rights, and evaluates the ability of traditional legal doctrines to cope with the advancing challenges of the digital age.

Presently, Sagi is working on another book for Oxford University Press, entitled International Negotiable Instruments (co-authored with Professor Benjamin Geva, due 2019). This joint work explores the historical background and origins of international negotiable law, and tackles such issues as the differences between the systems, harmonization trends, and the challenges of the digital age.
