I am Professor of Public Law at the Faculty of Law, University of Cambridge, where I teach Constitutional Law and Administrative Law, and a Fellow of St Catharine's College, where I am Director of Studies in Law for first and second-year undergraduate students. I am also Legal Adviser to the House of Lords Constitution Committee, a Fellow of the Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law and co-founder and co-convenor of a biennial series international conferences on Public Law.

 

I have published widely in the field of Public Law. I am the author of two textbooks — Public Law (OUP 2014, 2nd ed, co-written with Robert Thomas) and Beatson, Matthews & Elliott's Administrative Law (OUP 2011, 4th ed) — and of a monograph entitled The Constitutional Foundations of Judicial Review (Hart Publishing 2000), as well as the co-editor of Public Law Adjudication in Common Law Systems: Process and Substance (Hart Publishing, 2016, with John Bell, Jason Varuhas and Philip Murray), The Scope and Intensity of Substantive Review: Traversing Taggart’s Rainbow (Hart Publishing, 2015, with Hanna Wilberg), The Cambridge Companion to Public Law (Cambridge University Press, 2015, with David Feldman) and Effective Judicial Review: A Cornerstone of Good Governance (Oxford University Press, 2010, with Christopher Forsyth, Swati Jhaveri, Michael Ramsden and Anne Scully-Hill). I am also the author of a number of articles and essays on public-law topics, including judicial review of government action, the sovereignty of Parliament, human rights, devolution, tribunals, ombudsmen and local government.
