In 2017 she contributed a chapter, ‘The Risk of Liability: A Tightrope for Entertainment Productions’ to the edited monograph, Entertainment Law (The Federation Press).

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).

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.
