Former state and federal MP Rob Hulls has been appointed an adjunct professor and the inaugural director of the Centre for Innovative Justice at RMIT. He studied law at RMIT before being admitted to practice as a barrister and solicitor in 1983. He worked in his father’s legal practice before joining Victoria Legal Aid and then went to Queensland to work for an Aboriginal legal service. He was elected to federal Parliament and later returned to Melbourne and was elected to the State Parliament. He held a number of portfolios including industrial relations, planning, manufacturing, WorkCover and racing and was attorney-general for 11 years. He was also deputy premier for three. Hulls said he was excited to be returning to the place where his legal career began. “The Centre for Innovative Justice, once established, has the potential to be a world-class centre of excellence for teaching, learning and research in relation to therapeutic justice,” Hulls said.
