Kate Seaar

Kate Seear is Associate Professor in the Faculty of Law at Monash University and the Academic Director of Springvale Monash Legal Service. She also holds a prestigious Australian Research Council DECRA Fellowship. Through this fellowship, she explores how the law conceptualises alcohol and other drug ‘addiction’. This work includes analyses of the affective and emotional dimensions of lawyering for people understood to be experiencing ‘addiction’ and the implications of these practices for clinical legal education.
