Neither, so far, has she entered competitions for personal essays or memoir pieces or sought to have them published in literary magazines. But two of them are included in an anthology published by the Bellingen Writers’ Group:

  • ‘How Your Passion Became Mine, Dad’, in 500 Words Or Less, Bellingen Writers’ Group, 2011
  • ‘What Did You Do In The War, Dad?’, in 500 Words Or Less, Bellingen Writers’ Group, 2011

Legal publications

During Annette’s 18 years as a legal academic, she taught and edited the course materials for the following subjects:

Introduction to the Australian Legal System; Torts; Comparative Law; Japanese Law; and Asian Legal Systems and Business Laws.

She also taught Litigation.

Of almost 50 legal publications during that period, including conference papers and book reviews, many published in legal academic journals, the following two are most important to her:

Her 2010 research report Civil Litigation in New South Wales: Empirical and Analytical Comparisons with Germany (with Ann Eyland, 2010, 576 pages), for which she conducted lengthy interviews with judges and solicitors, took ten years to research and earned her a listing in the 2010 Sydney Morning Herald’s Sydney Magazine’s special issue on Sydney’s 100 most influential people. 

Her 1997 article “Access to Justice for Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse” (1997) 5 Torts Law Journal 221-254 has been used by numerous solicitors to successfully argue that the limitation periods for their client survivors of child sexual abuse should not be considered expired.
