The Austalian Wellness Network for Law was established as part of Rachael Field’s 2010 Australian Learning and Teaching Council Fellowship, an initiative of the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations.

Rachael has published widely in her areas of research interest which include dispute resolution, women and the law and family law, the first year experience, legal education, and student success and well-being. Her research portfolio of publications is regularly cited and work in the areas of mediation and domestic violence, legal education and law student success and well-being has had significant national impact and also some international level influence.
