Biographical details

Andrew Dyer was appointed as a Lecturer in the Faculty of Law in 2014, having taught in the Faculty since 2010. A graduate of Sydney Law School and the London School of Economics, Andrew began his working career not as a lawyer, but in television, acting and writing for various sketch comedy shows. He then worked at a large commercial law firm; as tipstaff to a judge of the NSW Court of Appeal; and - immediately before coming to Sydney Law School - as a Researcher at the Judicial Commission of NSW.

Alongside his other teaching responsibilities, Andrew teaches the “Legal Reasoning” course to JD students in the first semester of their degree. The aim of this course is to equip students with the skills necessary for success at law school, and to provide them with support as they embark on a challenging degree.

Andrew’s research concerns all aspects of the criminal law.
