Research interests

While I enjoy so many aspects of researching and writing about succession law, there are a few areas that really interest me. For those that have followed my blog for a time, these interests are likely already evident from the cases and legislation I choose to write about!

Here is a non-exhaustive list that is subject to change without notice:

  • Disentitling conduct in family provision claims
  • Estrangement in family provision claims
  • Forfeiture rule (also known as the “Slayer’s Rule” overseas)
  • Digital assets
  • Actual and Presumed undue influence in the context of powers of attorney and conflict transactions.

My love of research helped me along to enrol in my PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) in 2020 with the amazing blessing of a scholarship.

I am now incrediby honoured to be a student member of the Australian Health Law Research Centre (ACHLR) at Queensland University of Technology. Now, I must also be clear that this blog is a personal blog and whatever views I express here are my own and not that of QUT or ACHLR. I have been a huge fan of the amazing work ACHLR has been doing for years and it truly is an honour to be a part of their work now (I’m still pinching myself!). Take a look at their amazing work here.
