Professor Emeritus Ian Malkin

Director, Juris Doctor

The Ian Malkin Centre for Legal Academic Skills, Melbourne Law School

Ian's teaching, coordination and leadership roles span 30+ years. He was the winner of the 2021 Excellence in Teaching – Lifetime Career Achievement Award from the inaugural round of the Australian Legal Education Awards (ALEAs), awarded by the Council of Australian Law Deans. He has designed foundational subjects and been heavily involved in program-wide curriculum reviews and policy development. He has immersed himself in University roles, eg TALQAC, chairing program reviews and participating on working groups and the Curriculum Commission. He is extremely thankful for having had the opportunity to pursue such a rewarding career, working with inspiring colleagues and delightful students, who are a joy to teach. He is humbled by the fact that his efforts have been recognised with teaching awards and is proud of his appointment as a Level E Teaching Specialist (perhaps the first).
