CV / Biography

Mark Elliott is Professor of Public Law and Chair of the Faculty of Law at the University of Cambridge, and a Fellow of St Catharine's College, Cambridge. From 2015 to 2019, he served as Legal Adviser to the House of Lords Select Committee on the Constitution, providing advice to the Committee on a range of legislative and other matters. Mark co-founded the international biennial Public Law Conference series and co-convened the first two conferences. He is the recipient of a University of Cambridge Pilkington Prize for excellence in teaching and is the author of a widely read blog, Public Law for Everyone, that is aimed at public law scholars, current and prospective law students, policy-makers, and others who are interested in the subject.

Mark's research interests lie in UK constitutional law and English administrative law; a good deal of his recent work has concerned the constitutional implications of Brexit. He is the co-author of two textbooks: the fifth edition of Administrative Law (with Jason Varuhas) and the third edition of Public Law (with Robert Thomas) were both published in 2017 by Oxford University Press. Public Law is the UK's best-selling title in its field. In addition, he is the author of The Constitutional Foundations of Judicial Review; based on his doctoral thesis, for which he was awarded a University of Cambridge Yorke Prize, the book addresses the interface between constitutional theory and the courts’ powers of judicial review.

Mark has also edited a number of collections of essays on public law-related topics: Effective Judicial Review: A Cornerstone of Good Governance (with Christopher Forsyth, Swati Jhaveri, Michael Ramsden, and Anne Scully-Hill), The Scope and Intensity of Substantive Review: Traversing Taggart’s Rainbow (with Hanna Wilberg), The Cambridge Companion to Public Law (with David Feldman), Public Law Adjudication in Common Law Systems: Process and Substance (with John Bell, Jason Varuhas and Philip Murray), The Unity of Public Law? Doctrinal, Theoretical and Comparative Perspectives (with Jason Varuhas and Shona Wilson Stark), and The UK Constitution After Miller: Brexit and Beyond (with Jack Williams and Alison Young). Mark is currently co-editing (with Kirsty Hughes) a book on common law constitutional rights; it will be published in 2020 by Hart Publishing. Further information on Mark's publications can be found on his personal website, and copies of many of his publications can be downloaded via his SSRN author page.
