Teaching summary

I currently teache Competition Law and Policy and Contract Law in the LLB program at Deakin University. The Competition Law unit is taught online to a diverse group of senior students. Contract Law is taught on campus to first year LLB students and online. I have also previously taught a variety of other commercial law related subjects at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.
