Associate Professor Jennifer Nielsen recently celebrated the publication of her co-edited book, The Place of Practice: Lawyering in Rural and Regional Australia.

A collaboration with Dr. Trish Mundy (uow) and Associate Professor Amanda Kennedy (UNE), this important book draws together the work of leading Australian commentators on rural and regional legal practice, canvassing how lawyering differs in the rural, regional and remote (RRR) context, and identifying particular issues and barriers facing RRR clients.

As a consequence of this ground breaking work, Jennifer was invited by the Law Council of Australia to participate in an expert’s group consultation on RRR justice issues for ‘The Justice Project‘, and presented a paper on Social Justice for Rural and Regional Communities to the 6th Australia & NZ Legal Ethics Consortium Conference at the University of Auckland in December.

Along with 2 chapters in The Place of Practice, Jennifer has also written a chapter ‘Equality, Difference and the Law’ for inclusion in a Cambridge University Press title, Learning Law (in
press, 2018).
