Joe Tomlinson

Senior Lecturer in Public Law, University of York

I joined York Law School as Senior Lecturer in Public Law in 2019. Before that, I was Lecturer in Public Law at King’s College London and the University of Sheffield. I have held visiting positions at Melbourne Law School and Osgoode Hall Law School.

Through my research, I am engaged closely in the development of administrative justice policy and practice. I work extensively with legal practitioners, government, in Parliament, and with the charity sector (including acting as Research Director for the Public Law Project). My work has been cited by courts (including the UK Supreme Court), used in strategic litigation, has been the basis of a Law Commission reform project, and relied on by policymakers. I also sit on the Administrative Justice Council’s Academic Panel and was an ESRC Parliamentary Academic Fellow, supporting the Justice Committee’s inquiry into courts and tribunals reform.

During my Ph.D, I taught at the University of Manchester. I also worked in the President’s Cabinet at the EFTA Court, as Legal Assistant to Gerard McDermott QC, and at the Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law.
