Biographical details

After graduating in Law with first class honours from Macquarie University, Scott practiced as a solicitor in the commercial property and banking & finance sections of Freehill, Hollingdale & Page for two and a half years. He then undertook postgraduate study in Canada, before returning to Australia to take up a position in the Faculty of Law at the University of Wollongong. He worked there for many years, teaching property and trusts and, occasionally, conflict of laws and law & economics. He joined the Sydney Law School in February 2012. Scott has a PhD from the University of New South Wales and is a co-author of Australian Real Property Law (5th ed, 2011) [with Bradbrook, MacCallum and Moore] and Australian Property Law: Cases and Materials (4th ed, 2011) [with Bradbrook, MacCallum, Moore and Griggs].
