Teaching

Kieran has taught extensively into the LLB curriculum at law schools in Queensland and Western Australia. His teaching areas have been Administrative Law, Civil Procedure and Legal Theory. He has taught electives in Clinical Legal Education, Law and Culture and Law Reform. At QUT he coordinates the Law Thesis Research Extension subject that provides a pathway into HDR programs.

In 2018 Kieran was awarded a Group Learning and Teaching Citation by Griffith University for his leadership in the Law Reform elective that facilitated students developing experience in research impact through the drafting and submitting of reform submissions. He previously was awarded a Group Learning and Teaching Citation by Griffith University in 2011 for his leadership of the team that successfully redesigned and taught the legal theory courses to address student engagement and satisfaction concerns.

Kieran is particularly proud of his achievements as a HDR supervisor and the successes of his HDR candidates. In recognition of his demonstrated quality supervision practices he was awarded in 2017 a Group Research Supervision Award by Griffith University.
