MENZ Issues

Professor Jessica Palmer

Long serving dean of the Otago Law School Professor Mark Henaghan is stepping aside from his position and will remain at the University for the remainder of the year, while his deputy Professor Jessica Parker will fill the position.

Henaghan is not unknown for his recognition of men’s issues within the legal system, and his departure from the University may represent a significant loss to our advocacy within the legal framework.

The lead-in to other recent articles directly below the news item (as pictured) suggests there may have been some pressure on Henaghan to depart, given the nature of the media coverage shown.
