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 Natural Law and the Nature of Law, published by Cambridge University Press, and the Research Handbook on Natural Law Theory, co-edited with Constance Youngwon Lee and published by Edward Elgar. I am also currently involved in a public advocacy campaign with author and activist Bri Lee to reform the mistake of fact excuse in Queensland rape law.
