Personal profile


Liam Elphick is a Lecturer at the UWA Law School, having commenced in July 2017 following an Associateship with the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Western Australia.

Firstly, Liam's main area of research is anti-discrimination law, with a focus on LGBTIQA+ and religious freedom protections, and the enforcement and understanding of anti-discrimination law norms in Australia. Secondly, he researches into private law, and in particular the role negligence laws play in shaping social norms and behaviour. He also applies his negligence and anti-discrimination law research in the context of sport, both in Australia and internationally. Finally, Liam has a strong passion for legal education and undertakes empirical research into best pedagogical practices in teaching and learning.
