Dr Trish Luker is a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Law, University of Technology Sydney. Her research is primarily concerned with how, and on what basis, legal decisions are made. It focuses on two areas: analysis of legal decision-making and court processes; and evidentiary assessment, including theories of the documentary form in law. I have a growing reputation for innovative approaches to feminist legal research and ground-breaking contributions to interdisciplinary approaches to evidence law, documentation, archives and legal processes. My publications include: The Court as Archive (edited with Ann Genovese and Kim Rubenstein) (ANU Press, 2019); Evidence and the Archive: Ethics, aesthetics and emotion (edited with Katherine Biber) (Routledge, 2017) and Australian Feminist Judgments: Righting and rewriting law (edited with Heather Douglas, Francesca Bartlett and Rosemary Hunter) (Hart, 2014).
