Philip Williams (lawyer)
He was the son of the Rev. Philip Williams of Winchester. On 24 April 1798 he matriculated at New College, Oxford, of which he was also a Fellow until 1818. He was awarded his BCL in 1805 and his DCL in 1825. In 1824 he was appointed Vinerian Professor of English Law, which he remained until his death in 1843. At this period Oxford University was in a prolonged decline: the demands on the post were few, and there are no records of Williams' work.
