My Teaching and Learning approach is bound up with my personal values and concerns and my experience of the current needs of civic society. That  my law graduates have a legal  and ethical “overview” of society where "goodness" human rights, humanity, personal integrity, values and beliefs are made powerfully real, geared towards their desire and ability to advocate for the poor, the dispossessed, the minority. For my students to be the change they wish to see.
