BIO

Karen is a Lecturer in Law, and is admitted as a Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Queensland. She has a background in private practice (at Allens, formerly Feez Ruthning), and in research in the public sector (at the Queensland Law Reform Commission, Litigation Reform Commission, and Queensland Court of Appeal, respectively). When completing her Law degree, she was the Associate to the Honourable Mr Justice RH Matthews of the Supreme Court of Queensland. Karen's teaching experience is particularly in legal theory and jurisprudence, constitutional law, equity, international law and human rights law, and environmental law. Her research focus has embraced these areas; her doctorate concerned intergenerational justice from political-philosophical and constitutional perspectives. Recently, her research has extended to legal history: she edited and contributed to Legal History Turns, a Symposium developed from the Griffith Law School's Legal History Seminar Series; she chaired the Series' Organising Committee; and she contributed to the Supreme Court Library's Lord Atkin Exhibition 2017. In addition, she has been an editor of the Griffith Law Review and the Australian Journal of Legal Philosophy.
