About Me

Dr Michael Nancarrow received his PhD in Law from the University of NSW in 2010. He has previously also studied at Macquarie University, the University of Sydney and Oxford University. His professional and academic expertise in legal education and in his early law practice experience has been in property law. Michael has written 2 theses in this field, has delivered conference papers and published in this field, including in Halsburys’ Laws of Australia. His professional career started in the Commonwealth Department of Prime Minister & Cabinet during the Hawke government. Michael has also worked in private legal practice with the international firm of Baker & McKenzie and subsequently with Ross Tzannes (foundation author of the NSW Strata Titles loose leaf service and property law teacher at the University of Sydney Law School for 10 years) in the firm of Pryor, Tzannes and Wallis in Sydney.

Michael has taught at a range of universities and Law Schools in Australia and been a Visiting Fellow at Stanford Law School (USA) and Osgoode Hall Law School (Canada). Since 2013 he became more intensively involved in online legal education, through teaching into the CQUniversity online LLB program and taking responsibility for the property law courses within the CQU LLB program.

Another area of interest and expertise for Michael is professional and applied ethics. He has worked extensively in this field delivering conference papers and publishing internationally. In July 2012 he delivered a peer reviewed paper at the International Society for Business, Economics and Ethics World Congress in Warsaw. A version of that paper was also delivered to the Centre for International Governance, School of Law, University of Leeds in the United Kingdom.
