Dr Peter Cashman appointed Inaugural Professor of Law and Social Justice

28 July 2009

Sydney Law School is pleased to announce that Dr Peter Cashman has accepted the University's offer to become the Inaugural Professor of Law and Social Justice and Director of the Law School's Social Justice Program.

The University Senate approved the naming of a chair in law in memory of its former Chancellor Kim Santow.

Peter's chair will thus be known as the Kim Santow Chair in Law and Social Justice.

"I can think of no finer person to lead our social justice program than Peter as he has a wide range of expertise as a scholar, law reform commissioner, practicing solicitor and class action barrister," said the Dean, Professor Gillian Triggs.

"We welcome him most warmly into the Law School."
