About: Leonid Sirota

I teach at the Auckland University  of Technology, specializing in constitutional law. Prior to coming to New Zealand, I obtained an LL.M. (in legal theory) and a J.S.D. at the NYU School of Law; clerked for Justice Tremblay-Lamer at the Federal Court of Canada; and got a B.C.L./LL.B. (Hons.) from McGill. A list of my publications is below.

You can contact me at leonid.sirota at aut.ac.nz. I’m also on Twitter as @DoubleAspect.

I have also contributed, more less occasionally, original posts to other blogs: the CBA National Magazine’s Blog; that of Policy Options; and I-CONnect. In addition, almost all of my posts commenting on recent judicial decisions are cross-posted (sometimes with some modifications) on CanLII Connects, and some posts have been cross-posted to Advocates for the Rule of Law.
