I am a Professor of Law and Head of the Department of Law at the Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand. My main field of research interest is constitutional law (mainly aspects of the Crown, and ecclesiastical law.

One quasi-academic interest is academic dress and degrees - and I have a few of the latter myself, including LLB LLM MTheol MA PhD LTh and a Graduate Diploma in Tertiary Teaching. I am also a FRHistS.
