Joshua Krook
Higher Degree by Research Candidate
Adelaide Law School
Faculty of the Professions

I am a passionate researcher, writer and thinker interested in the humanities, policy and law. My background includes effective project management of research teams, academic publishing (US political analysis, specialization and social psychology) and non-fiction publications on legal education. I am pursuing a PhD exploring the creation of a new legal education curriculum centred on the humanities and the liberal arts.

My writing has been featured on ABC News (Opinion & Analysis), The Conversation, Business Insider, World University News and Overland. I have also appeared as a guest on ABC Radio, RTR FM and the Lawyers Weekly Podcast.

With a focus on national and international public speaking, academic pursuits and the impetus to inspire a new generation of intellectuals, my work spans law, politics, humanities and interactive game design.
