Sam's research involves considering future development of family property law, particularly in disputes between cohabiting couples. His PhD thesis contemplated the use of the doctrine of unjust enrichment in this context and his current research considers the doctrine's potential relationship to widespread mistaken beliefs as to the rights of cohabiting couples. Sam also examines the value attached to domestic work such as caring within the home and questions the tension of love and money present in the case law. This has led to his examination of the economic theory of commodification in this context.
