About: Mark Mancini

I am a PhD student at the Allard School of Law (University of British Columbia), where I study the law of judicial review particularly as it applies to the carceral state. I am a graduate of the University of New Brunswick, Faculty of Law (JD) and the University of Chicago Law School (LLM). My academic interests lie primarily in judicial review of administrative action, statutory interpretation, and the law governing prisons. I previously clerked at the Federal Court for Justice Ann Marie McDonald (2017-18). I also publish a weekly newsletter on recent Canadian administrative law cases (the Sunday Evening Administrative Review). 

I can be contacted at mark.p.mancini@gmail.com, and I am on Twitter at @MarkPMancini.
