Jamie’s research focuses on the intersection between mental health and criminal law. He is particularly interested in the way mental health issues should be taken into account in the sentencing context, as well as in broader questions of criminal responsibility and culpability. He teaches units on Criminal Law, Forensic Evidence, Lawyer's Ethics and Professional Practice.
Prior to his appointment at Monash, Jamie worked as Senior Research Officer at the Judicial College of Victoria, responsible for developing, drafting and updating the Victorian Criminal Charge Book. This is the main judicial reference book used by judges and legal practitioners in Victorian criminal jury trials. He also co-authored the Report of the Jury Directions Simplification Project (the 'Weinberg Report').
