Professor Aronson is a consultant at Russells, available to all of our staff and clients. Mark is Emeritus Professor of Law at the University of New South Wales. He consults in our Sydney office.
Professor Aronson has been widely recognised at the highest levels of the Australian Legal Profession, particularly for his expertise in administrative law, government torts, judicial review of administrative action (wrong-doing) and litigation and dispute resolution in a variety of settings. He has been honoured by the publication of a Festschrift, Administrative Law in a Changing State.
Professor Aronson has been a member of the UNSW Law School teaching staff since 1973, with the exception of a three year period in the late 1980s, when he was the NSW Attorney-General’s senior policy advisor. He formally retired in 2006, but remains actively involved in legal research.
He has taught Advanced Administrative Law, Legal System Torts, Litigation 1 and 2, Issues in Evidence, and Administrative Law and written and published extensively. He co-authored the first six editions of Litigation: Evidence and Procedure (LexisNexis, Sydney), a reform report for the Australian Institute of Judicial Administration titled Managing Complex Criminal Trials: Reform of the Rules of Evidence and Procedure (1992). Professor Aronson has also written and published extensively in the area of Administrative Law. His current text in that area (co-authored with Matthew Groves) is Judicial Review of Administrative Action (5th edition, Thomson Reuters, Sydney, 2013).
We are delighted to have Professor Aronson’s counsel – a rich resource for Russells and our clients.
