Personal profile

Research interests

The focus of my research is on animal law education and specifically, how teaching animal law can facilitate a personal, social and legal transformation.  I am exploring concepts such as ‘transformative learning’, ‘subversive pedagogy’, 'engaged pedagogy' and 'critical legal theory' and how they may apply to teaching animal law in order to empower students to critically analyse personal, social and legal norms.

My interest in this area of research stems from an understanding that animal law education provides an opportunity to consider new and existing legal remedies to advance the protection of animals from cruelty, neglect and exploitation.  In a world where more animals are suffering than ever before, the importance of animal law is apparent, and my research is vital to inform and improve the teaching practices of animal law to ensure its continued success.

My research will also contribute to the important work that the Bond University Centre for Professional Legal Education (CPLE) is undertaking in collaboration with Voiceless (the animal protection institute) to develop and deliver animal law education resources.
