Dr Ryan Stones joined The City Law School in September 2018 as a Lecturer in Law. He is the module leader for the LLB Competition Law module, LLM Mergers, and GELLB Constitutional and Administrative Law. He has also previously taught Public Law on the GDL and Immigration Law on the LLB. Since September 2019, he has also been Co-Director of the LLB Programme.

Ryan's research interests lie at the intersection between competition law and legal theory. His writing has been published in the Journal of Competition Law & Economics and the European Competition and Regulatory Law Review. His PhD thesis ("EU Competition Law and the Rule of Law: Justification and Realisation") was undertaken at the London School of Economics. It was supervised by Professor Pablo Ibáñez Colomo and Professor Martin Loughlin. He previously taught Public Law on the LSE LLB programme and Competition Law on the LSE Summer School.

Prior to commencing his PhD research, Ryan completed his master's degree at Corpus Christi College, University of Oxford (Bachelor of Civil Law, Distinction) where he specialised in EU Law, broadly defined. This followed his undergraduate degree at the LSE (LLB, First Class), where he received prizes for best examination performance in each of the three years, and awards for the highest mark in six modules (competition law, jurisprudence, European Union law, administrative law, public international law, property law (land and trusts)).
