My research interests lie in the field of public law, broadly conceived. I have published widely in that area, addressing such matters as judicial review, devolution, local government, parliamentary sovereignty, judicial control of prerogative power, public sector ombudsmen, tribunals, public inquiries and the nature and implications of bills of rights. My most recent books are the second edition of Public Law (with Robert Thomas) and the fourth edition of Beatson, Matthews and Elliott's Administrative Law: Text and Materials. I am currently editing (with David Feldman) The Cambridge Companion to Public Law and (with Hanna Wilberg) a collection of essays entitled The Scope and Intensity of Substantive Review: Traversing Michael Taggart’s Rainbow. I am the author of a blog about public law, and can be found on Twitter as @ProfMarkElliott. Further information about my academic interests and publications can be found on my personal website. The full text of some of my papers can be accessed via my SSRN author page.
