Personal profile

Research interests

I am an experienced legal practitioner and law teacher, with some thirty-five years' experience in both the teaching and practice of Law. Following graduation from the University of Queensland in 1979, I was employed as an academic at UQ, before embarking upon a full-time career as a barrister in 1982.

Throughout my time as a legal practitioner, I was also a part-time lecturer at the Queensland University of Technology, the Australian Catholic University and Central Queensland University. I was in continuous legal practice in Australia and Internationally, until accepting a permanent appointment as a Senior Lecturer with Central Queensland University in 2006.

I joined the Bond University Law Faculty in 2010. I have teaching expertise in Taxation and Revenue Law, Civil Legal Practice and Procedure, Evidence Law, Company and Association Law, Contract Law and Ethics and Professional Practice. My principal areas of legal practice are in Commercial Law, Estate and Succession Law, Corporate Insolvency and Bankruptcy.

Whilst in practice as a barrister, I was regularly retained to act on behalf of Company Liquidators and Trustees in Bankruptcy, as well as numerous corporate clients involved in complex legal disputes. I was appointed to the position of Director of the Bond University Professional Legal Training Programs in 2015.

I co-authored Lexis Nexis text 'Civil Procedure Law - Questions and Answers', which was published in 2016.

I am currently conducting research in the following specific areas:
o Civil Procedure Law reform in Australia
o Taxation and Revenue Law teaching
o Instructional on-line learning for Insolvency Professionals
o Australian War Crimes Trials
