I have been at UNSW for over twenty years. My research interests in tort law are the attribution of responsibility in negligence, the impact of apologies on propensity to sue and in succession law the impact of Australian law on Indigenous people's inheritance. I am the author of numerous publications in both torts (including with Sappideen, 'Flemings' The Law of Torts' 10th ed, 2011) and succession (most recent 'Bleak House Revisited: disproportionate costs in family provision law', published by Australasian Institute of Judicial Administration 2011) and of Law and Justice in Australia: foundations of the legal system, 2nd ed, Oxford UP 2009, And I have interests outside the law as well!
