Personal profile

Research interests

I am an experienced litigation lawyer and mediator. After a decade in private legal practice, I commenced my teaching career at Bond University in 1994, where I am currently an Associate Professor of Law. I teach civil procedure, international dispute settlement, mediation, advocacy and a range of other dispute resolution courses.

I have also taught dispute resolution and legal skills at a number of other universities including the University of Queensland (Brisbane, Australia); the University of Applied Sciences, Jena (Germany); the Martin-Luther University of Halle-Wittenberg (Germany), North-West University, Potchefstroom (South Africa) and Thomas Gordon University, Aberdeen (Scotland).

I have published extensively in the areas of dispute resolution, legal skills and legal education. My most recent publications is Legal Skills: A Practical Guide for Students (2006) and Skills, Ethics and Values for Legal Practice (2009).   

My major research interests are legal education; learning and teaching of legal skills, ethics and values; regulation of the legal profession and its connection to legal education; and all forms of dispute resolution.
