Biography

Jason Taliadoros (LLB BA (Hons) PhD Melb, GCHE Deakin) is an Associate Professor in the Deakin Law School. Prior to joining the Deakin Law School, Jason was an Australian Research Council (ARC) Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the School of History and sessional teacher in the Faculty of Law, at Monash University betyween 2008 and 2011. Prior to this he was a Post-Doctoral Teaching Fellow at Siena College (USA) between 2004 and 2005. Jason has been an academic visitor to the Melbourne Law School in 2014 and 2019 and the Stephan Kuttner Institute for Medieval Canon Law in Munich in 2010 and 2014.

Jason's research and teaching areas cross between legal history, torts, and statutory compensation schemes. He has published on these topics in leading international journals, such as Journal of Legal History, Cleveland State Law Review, Haskins Society Journal, Zeitschrift der Savigny-Stiftung für Rechtsgeschichte-Kanonistische Abteilung, Sortuz (Oñati Journal of Emergent Socio-legal Studies), and Journal of Religious History. He has published in prominent edited collections, presented at international and local conferences, and also authored a policy report on workers' compensation.

Associate Professor Taliadoros is the co-author of Victorian Statutory Compensation Schemes (LexisNexis, 2021), a comprehensive text book on the workers' compensation and transport accident schemes in Victoria. He is also author of the chapter 'Remedies' in Joanna Kyriakakis et al, Contemporary Australian Tort Law (Cambridge University Press, 2020), a major text book on tort law. In addition, with Sharon Erbacher, he is the author of Restitution: The Laws of Australia (Thomson Reuters, 2014).

His ARC-funded research centred on tracing antecedents of modern conceptions of ‘human rights’, and he has published in this area. His book, Law and Theology in Twelfth-Century England (Brepols, 2006) re-appraised the role of law as a discipline that merged and intersected with theology in the twelfth century, and stems from his his doctoral thesis.

Jason has practised as a solicitor with a major Melbourne commercial firm and with Monash University.
