St Catharine's Fellow Elected as Faculty Chair

St Catharine’s College was delighted to hear that our Law Fellow, Professor Mark Elliott, has been elected as the Chair of the Faculty of Law.

Professor Elliott joined the Fellowship of St Catharine’s in 1998, and directs studies in Law at the College. He will begin his three-year term as Chair of the Faculty of Law on 1 April 2018, when the tenure of the current holder of the post, Professor Richard Fentiman, comes to an end.

In addition to his roles within the University, Professor Elliott 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, his 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).  He is also the author of the Public Law for Everyone blog.

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."
