Personal profile


Jemimah is an Associate Lecturer at Macquarie Law School. She completed her BA/LLB at the University of Sydney (graduating with First Class Honours) and is a PhD candidate at UNSW Law (supervised by Professors Rosalind Dixon and Gabrielle Appleby). Prior to joining Macquarie Law School, she was a teaching fellow at both UNSW and Macquarie Law School, teaching a broad range of subjects including constitutional law, tort law, contracts, business law, and foundations of law.

Jemimah’s research focuses on comparative constitutional law - in particular, the relationship between the Australian and US constitutional traditions. She is particularly interested in exploring the potential contribution that ‘borrowing’ of US legal doctrine could offer the High Court in its development of Australian constitutional jurisprudence, which is the subject of her PhD thesis. In early 2018, she spent a three month period researching at Stanford Law School, completing an elective on the US First Amendment ‘Speech’ and ‘Religion’ clauses.

Before moving into academia, Jemimah worked as a solicitor at a global law firm in Sydney, with experience across a broad range of practice groups (including mergers and acquisitions, energy regulation and property law, insolvency and general litigation). During this time she was actively involved in the firm’s pro bono practice, and completed secondments with Justice Connect (Sydney) and as in house counsel for a not-for-profit in Broome, Western Australia.
