Jill Hunter is a Professor of Law at the University of New South Wales. Her publications and teaching focus upon the law and practice relating to criminal justice processes and the law of evidence. Her publications examine the impact of black letter law through practice-based, sociological and historical perspectives, with a prominent concern for law reform.
