- 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 core applied legal ethics course.
Justine’s research focuses on the changes to the legal professions, legal ethics and ethical decision-making, and lawyers' identities and wellbeing. She is currently a chief investigator in an Australian Research Council Linkage grant on the meanings and workings of professionalism in the 21st Century.
Justine 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’ skills in legal ethics. Justine holds an MSc in Educational Research Methodology from the University of Oxford. She is the Chair of the Faculty's Legal Education Research Cluster.
Justine has been asked to present on her teaching innovations, innovations that incorporate blended learning, group-based learning, models of ethics deliberation and theories of student wellbeing.
Justine also produces and takes part in pop academic events. She co-manages the UNSW legal education blog, Law School Vibe.
