Beloff is the son of the historian Max Beloff, Baron Beloff, and is therefore by courtesy styled 'the Honourable'. His mother was Helen Dorbin. He was educated at the Dragon School, Eton and Magdalen College, Oxford, and was President of the Union. As President of the Union he passed a resolution in 1963 to allow women to have full membership for the first time.
The term Plate glass university stems from the title of his book "The Plateglass Universities" (1970).
Since 1995 he has been a member of the Jersey Court of Appeal and the Guernsey Court of Appeal. He sits on the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), which deals with disputes including doping offences on behalf of the International Olympic Committee.
He served as President of Trinity College, Oxford, from 1996 to 2006 and was succeeded by Ivor Roberts. Trinity College now awards a Michael and Judith Beloff Scholarship. Trinity College's debating society also runs the annual Michael Beloff After-Dinner Speaking Competition, open to members of the college.
