Final Draft (Offline Submission).pdf
I would like to extend both my thanks and gratitude to the following people:
Firstly, my dissertation supervisor, Professor Malcolm Sargeant, for encouraging me to take
this research proposal as an opportunity to enjoy legal research, and for his continued support,
critique and feedback from start to finish.
Secondly, my father, Russell, for not only his everlasting support, but for actually facilitating
my LL.M and making this research experience possible.
Lastly, my best friend and brother, Scott. For 25 years of continued support, guidance, love
and care. Such a demanding degree and dissertation have both been made easier for me due to
the amazing friendship and laughter that we share each and every day. I am also thankful for
the constant reminders to always try and focus on the brighter side of life, which I sometimes
struggle to find.
