I teach public law and legal philosophy at the Auckland University of Technology. I am also the director of the LLM programme there. Prior to coming to New Zealand, I got a B.C.L./LL.B. (Hons.) from McGill, clerked for Justice Tremblay-Lamer at the Federal Court of Canada, and obtained an LL.M. (in legal theory) and a J.S.D. at the NYU School of Law.

My research concerns a variety of public law topics, focusing mostly on Canada but occasionally venturing to other jurisdictions. I have written on constitutional conventions, on the freedoms of conscience and religion, on the law of democracy, on constitutional interpretation, on judicial review of administrative decisions, on the Rule of Law, and sometimes on other issues.
