Senior lecturer, School of Law and Justice, Southern Cross University

Nicole is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Law and Justice at Southern Cross University. Nicole’s current research interests include the intersection of performance studies theory and law, wild law, climate activism and climate litigation. She has published widely in these areas. From 2014 to 2017 she instigated and co-led the Wild Law Judgment project, and she is co-editor of Law as if Earth Really Mattered: the Wild Law Judgment Project (Routledge, 2017). In her 2019 research monograph, Law, Fiction and Activism in a Time of Climate Change (Routledge, 2019), she investigates the ways in which the climate change story is being narrated and, in some instances, performed by litigants, judges, writers and activists, and the multiple roles of climate narratives as catalyst, mirror and script.
