Apologies to readers of this blog for my recent silence — LETR has been soaking up all available waking hours. Other matters too: last week I resigned from Northumbria Law School. I have accepted a full-time professorial post at the Australian National University’s College of Law, and will be starting there in March 2013.
ANU’s was an irresistible offer. I’m already an adjunct prof there, and have worked with staff — they are a dynamic and incredibly innovative cadre, collegial too. It’s a great atmosphere, and a real privilege to be given the opportunity to work with them. I’ll be heading up a centre for legal education & the profession, along the lines of a distributed web-based centre, global in its reach, interdisciplinary, taking in all forms of experiential legal education, all forms of technology use. I’ll still be based in the UK, with a professional foothold here (more on that later) and working five months a year on campus in Canberra.
