Oxford Private Law Theory publishes leading work in private law theory. It commissions and solicits monographs and edited collections in general private law theory as well as specific fields, including the theoretical analysis of tort law, property law, contract law, fiduciary law, trust law, remedies and restitution, and the law of equity. The series is open to diverse theoretical perspectives, including those informed by philosophy, economics, history, and political theory. Oxford Private Law Theory sets the standard for rigorous and original work in private law theory.

In addition to monographs and edited collections, Oxford Private Law Theory publishes Oxford Studies in Private Law Theory, a biennial series that showcases the best article-length work across private law theory. The series publishes exceptional work, selected in part through a call for papers, exploring the full range of private law's domains and doctrines-including contract, property, tort, and fiduciary law as well as equity, unjust enrichment, and remedies-and employing diverse methodological approaches to individual areas of private law as well as to private law in general.

Consonant with Oxford University Press's commitment to diversity and inclusion, all proposed Oxford Private Law Theory collections, including Oxford Studies in Private Law Theory, are evaluated in part by whether they are inclusive of underrepresented groups in the field, including along dimensions of gender, race, ethnicity, religious affiliation, sexual identity, and national origin.
