Congratulations to Kellie Toole on recent promotion

Kellie Toole joined the casual academic staff of the Law School in 2010 after practising as a criminal defence lawyer for a number of years. In 2011 she was appointed as a permanent Associate Lecturer and has just been promoted to a Level B Lectureship.

This promotion recognises Kellie’s contribution to teaching in Criminal Law and Procedure, Evidence and Proof in Theory and Practice, and supervising in the clinical legal education clinics, as well as the publication of articles in high quality journals on issues at the intersection of human rights and criminal law. She has a special interest in publishing in the areas of rape and murder.

Kellie has maintained a steady media presence during her employment in the Law School, saying “I think its important that academics don’t just communicate with other academics through journal articles, so I have enjoyed talking to print and TV journalists about legal issues that affect all members of the community such as rape, self-defence, police powers and defendants’ rights to a fair trial’.
Kellie is looking forward to the opportunities for greater involvement in lecturing and co-ordinating specialist electives in advanced criminal law that the promotion will offer.

Adelaide Law School Dean Professor John Williams said of the promotion “As we know Kellie is highly valued as a scholar and educator. Her recent publications have been in top journals and are making an original contribution to the field. Similarly her teaching has been praised by colleagues and students alike. Please join with me in congratulating Kellie on her promotion. Well done!”
