- Justine Rogers
Justine’s appointment in 2013 coincided with the Faculty’s major curriculum review and she has been responsible for designing Lawyers, Ethics & Justice, the new, core applied legal ethics course. Justine’s research focuses on lawyers’ identities and wellbeing, legal ethics and ethical decision-making, and the changes to the legal professions. She completed her DPhil at the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies at the University of Oxford, which was an ethnographic study of London barristers and pupillage.
Justine’s other research area is legal education. While in the UK, she co-wrote an extensive report for the Law Society of England and Wales on how best to teach and assess legal ethics. With the support of the OLT and UNSW, she is currently investigating law students’ attitudes towards and skills in legal ethics. Justine holds an MSc in Educational Research Methodology from the University of Oxford.
Justine also produces pop academic events.
