Amanda Stickley is currently the Law Faculty Assistant Dean Learning & Teaching. Amanda joined the Law Faculty staff as an Associate Lecturer in 1999. Prior to her appointment, she had been a sessional academic with the Law Faculty, tutoring in torts, contracts and legal research, as well as being the Senior Research Assistant to the Centre for Commercial and Property Law. Amanda’s main area of teaching and research is torts law – she teaches torts law in the LLB (Hons), a core first year unit and is the author of Australian Torts Law (LexisNexis, 4th ed, 2016). In 2017 she contributed a chapter, ‘The Risk of Liability: A Tightrope for Entertainment Productions’ to the edited monograph, Entertainment Law (The Federation Press). She was the torts section editor of The Queensland Lawyer (Thomson Reuters) from 2001 until 2014 and has been a member of the editorial panel of Australian Civil Liability (LexisNexis) since 2013. Amanda was a member of the collaborative team at QUT that was awarded $1.19 million in research by the Bushfire & Natural Hazards CRC in 2013. Her teaching has been recognised by the Higher Education Academy (UK) through a Senior Fellowship as well as by QUT through the award of three Vice Chancellor Performance Awards for ‘significant and superior contribution to the work of the University’ (2007, 2008, 2014, 2017). Amanda’s interest in learning and teaching has led to contributing to various committees and projects at school, faculty and university level. For example, she is an active member of QUT Academy of Learning & Teaching as a reviewer, a member of the University Learning & Teaching Committee, the Curriculum Standards Committee and the Designing & Evidencing Learning Working Party. Prior to becoming the Assistant Dean Learning & Teaching, Amanda held various roles within the Law School, including Director of Undergraduate Programs (Curriculum), Chair of the Law School Learning & Teaching Committee, Project Manager (Implementation of Curriculum) and First Year Coordinator.
Amanda has taught and coordinated the first year units of torts law (LLB102), and has been a member of the property law teaching team.
