Mark grew up in Birmingham before studying law at Oxford.  After a year at the College of Law he joined a large commercial firm of solicitors back in Birmingham as an articled clerk.  He qualified as a solicitor in 1990, specializing in commercial property law.  In 1995 Mark left private practice, and since then has taught law part-time at Keele.  He also taught at Aston University for a number of years.

Mark has a reputation for taking an innovative and sometimes dramatic approach to his teaching. He has also been keen to explore and use electronic resources in teaching, both at Keele and more widely. Mark is responsible for the Land Law volume in Palgrave Macmillan’s Law Masters Series.
