Achievements

I am currently employed on a part-time (50%) basis at the Law School. After graduating with a law degree, I worked for AMP collating and maintaining its capital gains tax database in London. I was admitted as a barrister and solicitor of the Supreme Court of Tasmania and the High Court in 1997. I practised Law with Dobson Mitchell and Allport for 3 years, mainly in the areas of civil and commercial litigation. I returned to academia and commenced postgraduate study at the Law School in 2000, and was awarded a PhD in 2005. I was involved in teaching and research activities at the Law School while I completed my studies, and was appointed a permanent lecturer in 2007. Units Taught Law 224 Torts B
