Justine Bell-James

Lecturer in Law, The University of Queensland

I am a lecturer in law at the TC Beirne School of Law at the University of Queensland, with research interests spanning environmental law, climate change adaptation, and coastal ecosystem protection. I undertook my postdoctoral research with the Global Change Institute at the University of Queensland, focussed on legal issues surrounding sea-level rise and flooding. I work extensively with colleagues from science, and my work has a strong multidisciplinary character.
