Mark O’Neill – Appointed 2020

As a Research Contracts Manager at the Institute of Clinical Trials and Methodology at UCL, I negotiate, draft, and advise staff on various types of contracts relating to clinical research.

I am also a sports law researcher and practitioner, with an LLM in Sports Law and Practice from De Montfort University; and am undertaking a PhD at the University of Westminster  on football club ownership regulation and how this aligns with the fan perception of what qualities a ‘good’ owner should have.

I have published articles on topics such as the Owners and Directors Tests in English football, the Hillsborough Stadium disaster, and the use of artificial intelligence in the legal industry. I volunteer as an Independent Disciplinary Panel Member at The Football Association, where I conduct hearings and decide on sanctions for breaches of FA rules.

I am passionate about the alleviation of poverty and helping others who often through no fault of their own, struggle financially and with a lack of opportunity to achieve their potential. As someone who has experienced my fair share of debt problems, I feel I can bring an empathetic perspective.
