New Griffith Law School Dean aims for deeper alumni links

Developing deeper relationships with Griffith Law School alumni is the aim of Griffith Law School’s new Dean and Head of School Associate Professor Therese Wilson.

“I want to work more closely with our graduates to help them stay better connected and to provide more remarkable professional engagement opportunities for our students,’’ she says.

“I have been privileged over my 18 years at Griffith Law School to build strong relationships with many of our amazing alumni. I want to reach out to even more, as they are all so keen to be involved and support our current students.”

Associate Professor Wilson said she also wanted to ensure that Griffith Law School staff feel supported in undertaking impactful research as well as providing a high-quality learning experience for students.

“It has always been our point of difference at Griffith Law School that we take teaching very seriously and make ourselves available to our students. We need to maintain that legacy while improving course delivery through innovation.”

Associate Professor Wilson’s teaching and research expertise is in the areas of corporate law, banking and finance law, consumer law and international arbitration. She wrote her PhD thesis on “Regulating to Facilitate Access to Safe and Affordable Credit for Low Income Australians”.

She has served as Chair of the board of Foresters Community Finance Limited and as Chair of the Australian Financial Inclusion Network. Since 2003 Associate Professor Wilson has coached Griffith Law School’s Vis international commercial arbitration moot team.
