I am Professor of Law at Bond University and a regular Visiting Scholar at the University of Texas at Austin. My research explores the relationship between law and ethics at both theoretical and applied levels. I am interested in the ways in which ethical norms and relations are embodied in social practices and how these practices, in turn, provide the normative basis for legal and social institutions.
My recent books include Mediation Ethics: From Theory to Practice, co-authored with Rachael Field (Edward Elgar, 2020); Natural Law and the Nature of Law (Cambridge University Press, 2019); and the Research Handbook on Natural Law Theory, co-edited with Constance Youngwon Lee (Edward Elgar, 2019). I co-edit the Journal of Legal Philosophy with Hillary Nye.
I am Co-Director with Rachael Burgin and Saxon Mullins of Rape and Sexual Assault Research and Advocacy, an Australia-wide initiative working to change community attitudes about consent and shape legal responses to sexual violence. I am also involved in an ongoing public advocacy campaign with author and activist Bri Lee to reform the mistake of fact excuse in Queensland rape law.
