Ryan joined The City Law School in September 2018. He is the module leader for the LLB Competition Law elective, and also teaches Mergers on the LLM, Public Law on the GDL, and LLB2 Immigration Law.

Ryan's research interests lie at the intersection between competition law and legal theory. In September 2018 he submitted his PhD thesis ("EU Competition Law and the Rule of Law: Justification and Realisation") to the London School of Economics, written under the supervision of Professor Pablo Ibáñez Colomo and Professor Martin Loughlin. He taught Public Law on the LLB programme and Competition Law on the LSE Summer School.

Ryan also holds degrees from the University of Oxford (Bachelor of Civil Law, Distinction) where he specialised in EU Law, broadly defined, and the LSE (LLB, First Class).
