Dr Michael Spence AC, currently Vice-Chancellor of the University of Sydney, has been confirmed as the new President & Provost of UCL by Council. He will succeed Professor Michael Arthur, who will be stepping down from the role after seven years, in January 2021.

Dr Spence is recognised internationally as a leader in the field of intellectual property theory and holds a Doctor of Philosophy from the University of Oxford, where he headed Oxford’s Law faculty and Social Sciences division.
