Ms Anne Hewitt

Associate Professor

Adelaide Law School

Faculty of the Professions


Anne is an Associate Professor within the Law School. She is passionate about curriculum design and teaching, and has won numerous local and national teaching awards, including an OLT Citation and a LexisNexis ALTA award. Anne is an active researcher into legal education, and has a long history of publication in this area. Her teaching related research has also been funded by a number of significant grants, including two significant Category 1 OLT grants to support the Smart Casual project (https://smartlawteacher.org/). Anne's personal interest in equality in society inspires her second area of research; anti-discrimination and equality laws. Anne has investigated a range of issues in this area, with a particular focus on religious discrimination.

In recent years these two areas of research interest have combined, as Anne has joined a number of teams considering issues associated with unpaid work, particularly in the transition between education and employment. She is currently working on an Australian Research Council Discovery project grant ‘Regulating Post-secondary Work Experience: Labour Law at the Boundary of Work and Education' (DP150104516) with Professor Rosemary Owens, Professor Andrew Stewart and Dr Joanna Howe, and recently completed a national project considering the nature, prevalence and impact of unpaid work in Australia with Damian Oliver, Paula McDonald, Andrew Stewart.
