Personal profile

Research interests

I am interested in the ways in which property, and property law, affect society. I have a particular interest in land, and land tenure, including Indigenous tenures. I work with various theoretical perspectives such as feminist legal theory and critique to analyse the implications of property - and land tenure - for justice.

My work with feminist legal theory includes issues affecting the legal profession and legal education, as well as women's property. I research also in fertility law, including surrogacy and gamete donation.

I research in legal education, particularly in curriculum. I am interested in the 'broader contexts of law' and how to design law curricula that encompass such contexts. To this end I have designed and carried out research projects on digital literacies (flexible learning), Indigenous inclusion, sustainability, gender, place-based learning, and the first year in law.

I am currently a member of the OLT-funded Smart Casual project, developing a series of self-paced, free, online professional development modules for sessional law teachers.

Statement for HDR students

I can offer supervision for HDR students in the law of real property, notably land tenure, including Indigenous tenures. Of particular interest is the capacity of property law to promote environmental, social, and cultural sustainability.

I have experience in research involving justice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians, and I apply feminist legal theory in my work to analyse the law in the interests of equality for women. I am keen to meet with HDR students who are interested in researching within these theoretical frameworks.

I also encourage HDR students interested in legal education. My principal focus rests on curriculum, but I have undertaken research on multiple perspectives including Indigenous inclusion, digital literacies, internationalisation, first year experience, gender, and sustainability.
