In what spare time remains, Mark is trying to make it through the complete works of Franz Kafka in German while simultaneously keeping abreast of developments in county cricket in the UK. Following his LL.M. studies, Mark will commence his pupillage at a leading set of Barristers’ Chambers in England, specializing in company law.
