Professor McNamara is the current Head of School at Queensland University of Technology’s School of Law and will take up her new role in June.

The University of Adelaide said her areas of teaching expertise include contract and business law, legal research and work integrated learning legal practice.

“I am honoured and delighted to be the next Dean of the Adelaide Law School. The School is renowned for its world-class research and legal education and its deep connections with the legal community,” McNamara said.

“I look forward to meeting the legal community in Adelaide and to working with the Law School as it continues to build a just society through its excellent research, community engagement and the influence of its graduates.”

The University of Adelaide’s executive dean of the Faculty of Arts, Business, Law and Economics Professor John Williams said McNamara would bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Adelaide Law School, which currently has an interim Dean.

“The Adelaide Law School is South Australia’s oldest law school, established in 1883, so it was imperative we found a Dean of Law with a wealth of knowledge and experience to guide the Law School well into the future, as well as adding further expertise and value to our fantastic law programs,” he said.

“We are thrilled to have Judith on board. Her outstanding background in legal education will allow our students to continue to succeed in legal education.”
