Background

Prior to joining the QUT Faculty of Law on a full-time basis, Tracey practised as a solicitor in commercial and real property law at the Brisbane office of Allens Arthur Robinson, Lawyers (now Allens Linklaters). The recipient of a British Chevening – Cambridge Commonwealth Trust Scholarship, Tracey completed her Master of Law Degree at the University of Cambridge (Wolfson College), England. She is also a graduate of the B Business (Accountancy) / B Laws combined degree course at QUT, where she was awarded first class honors and a University Medal for her law studies.

Research and Service Interests

Researching mainly in the area of Torts Law, Tracey has published and presented conference papers on the law of negligence, including the formulation of duties of care (and their interrelation with the availability of insurance and the concept of plaintiff vulnerability), causation, damages assessment, civil liability legislation, wrongful death, and health law and medical negligence. She coordinates the Faculty of Law’s Torts and Consent to Treatment and Clinical Negligence units, and is a member of the Australian Centre for Health Law Research.

However, Tracey’s research interests also include the area of legal education – with a particular emphasis upon teaching pedagogy, peer programs and Generation Y students. She coordinates the Faculty’s Torts Student Peer Mentor Program and holds PASS/SI Supervisor Accreditation (University of Missouri Kansas City, University of Wollongong).  Tracey is a member of the Higher Education Research Network (HERN).
