Mark Elliott elected Chair of Faculty Board from April 2018
The Faculty of Law is delighted to announce that the Faculty Board has elected Professor Mark Elliott as the next Chair of the Faculty. Professor Elliott will begin his three-year term on 1 April 2018, when the tenure of the current holder of the post, Professor Richard Fentiman, comes to an end.
Mark Elliott is Professor of Public Law at the Faculty of Law, and a Fellow of and Director of Studies in Law at St Catharine’s College. He is also Legal Adviser to the House of Lords Select Committee on the Constitution.
With research interests lying principally in the fields of constitutional and administrative law, Mark’s recent publications include the co-authored textbooks Public Law (OUP, 2017, 3rd ed) and Administrative Law (OUP, 2017, 5th ed) as well as a co-edited collection of essays entitled Public Law Adjudication in Common Law Systems: Process and Substance(Hart Publishing, 2016).
The Faculty’s core and mutually reinforcing missions – of providing legal education that is unparalleled in its quality and producing outstanding, agenda-setting research – will remain constant
Responding to his appointment, Mark said:
“I am delighted to have been appointed Chair of the Faculty of Law from April 2018. The coming period is likely to be one of both opportunity and challenge. However, the Faculty’s core and mutually reinforcing missions – of providing legal education that is unparalleled in its quality and producing outstanding, agenda-setting research – will remain constant. So too will its commitment to attracting and supporting the very best students and faculty from a wide and diverse range of jurisdictions and backgrounds.
I greatly look forward to taking on this new role, and to working with colleagues and students in maintaining and developing Cambridge’s position as one of the world’s pre-eminent law schools.”
