Lyn Tjon Soei Len joins the UNH faculty after one year as a visiting researcher at Harvard Law School and one semester as a fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study in Nantes, France. She earned her Ph.D. and LL.M. from the University of Amsterdam, where she worked as a researcher at and deputy director of the Centre for the Study of European Contract Law. Her research centers on the political-philosophical foundations of transnational private law, specifically focusing on the intersection of private-lawmaking and issues of social injustice, and most notably on issues of global injustice and gender inequality. Her first book "Minimum Contract Justice" details a capabilities-based perspective on the moral limits of contract through a case based illustration of transactions for goods made by women who work in sweatshops. Her current research project, "Consuming Contested Commodities," further explores contractual demarcations of the moral limits of consumption. At UNH, Tjon Soei Len teaches courses on feminism and the law, and the moral limits of markets.
