In August Clare Hall welcomed our new President, Professor David Ibbetson FBA. A world-leading legal historian and Roman lawyer, Professor Ibbetson has been Chairman of the University’s Law Faculty and is the Warden of Leckhampton, Corpus Christi’s graduate community. As the Regius Professor of Civil Law, he holds one of only eight Regius Chairs in the University.

Professor Ibbetson was raised in Manchester and first came to Cambridge as an undergraduate in 1973. He stayed in Cambridge for his postgraduate studies where he decided to pursue a career in academia. Throughout his academic career, college and university administration have gone hand-in-hand with his research and teaching. He has served as Dean of College and Senior Tutor at Magdalen College, Oxford, and after four years as a Fellow at Corpus, he was elected Warden of Leckhampton in 2004.

Professor Ibbetson brings to the presidency of Clare Hall a strong sense of the value of graduate communities and a keen interest in the development of our College. We hope many of you will get a chance to meet him as he enters his new role and that you will join us in wishing him a very warm welcome to Clare Hall.
