MercatorNet: promoting human dignity

Marcus Roberts

Marcus Roberts was two years out of law school when he decided that practising law was no longer for him. He therefore went back to Auckland University and did his LLM while tutoring at the new law school at the Aucland University of Technology. He has just started a new job teaching contract law at Auckland University. Aside from law, his passions include running and reading (particularly philosophy, apologetics and history) and supporting the New Zealand cricket team (which counts as penance for a vast multitude of sins).
