I am Professor of Law and Associate Dean (Research) in the Faculty of Law at Bond University. My research explores the relationship between law and ethics. 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 Australian Constitutional Law: Principles in Movement (Oxford University Press, 2022); Mediation Ethics: From Theory to Practice, co-authored with Rachael Field (Edward Elgar, 2020); and Natural Law and the Nature of Law (Cambridge University Press, 2019). I co-edit the Journal of Legal Philosophy with Raff Donelson and Hillary Nye.
I am Director of Research at Rape and Sexual Assault Research and Advocacy, an Australia-wide initiative working to shape community responses to sexual violence. I am also involved in a public advocacy campaign with author and activist Bri Lee to reform the mistake of fact excuse in Queensland rape law.
