Brief Biodata

Dr Sandra Booysen is an Associate Professor at the National University of Singapore, deputy-director of the Centre for Banking and Finance Law (CBFL), and serves on the editorial board of two academic journals: Singapore Journal of Legal Studies, the journal of NUS Law, and International Banking and Securities Law, published by Brill.

Sandra's research interests straddle contract and banking law and she has published her work in a variety of international journals, including the Journal of Business Law (UK), Lloyd's Maritime and Commercial Law Quarterly (UK), the Banking and Finance Law Review (Canada), the Journal of Contract Law (Australia) and the Singapore Journal of Legal Studies (Singapore). In 2017, Sandra co-edited a volume entitled Can Banks Still Keep a Secret? Bank Secrecy in Financial Centres Around the World which was published by Cambridge University Press and was the culmination of a research project funded by CBFL. She is currently engaged in a research project that is examining the problem of mis-selling investments to retail investors as revealed by the global financial crisis, and the ways in which jurisdictions have responded to the problem.

Prior to joining academia, Sandra practiced law in London and Johannesburg, with a focus on commercial litigation. She is admitted as a solicitor in England and Wales, and as an attorney in South Africa. Sandra is a graduate from Rhodes University, South Africa, where she completed an arts degree, and the University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa, where she completed her law degree. After moving to Singapore, Sandra pursued a Masters of Law degree, followed by her doctoral studies at the National University of Singapore.
