Odette Mazel

 

Odette is a Research Fellow with the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences and a PhD student at the Melbourne Law School. Her research focuses on the rights of marginalised communities including Indigenous peoples and members of the LGTBIQ community and the cultural, social and legal avenues through which to pursue those rights.

Her work draws upon a range of critical legal theories particularly those influenced by feminism, postcolonialism and queer theory.

Since 2008 she has been a Research Fellow and Program Manager of the Leaders in Indigenous Medical Education (LIME) Network which works to improve the quality and effectiveness of teaching and learning of Indigenous health in medical education, as well as best practice in the recruitment and graduation of Indigenous medical students. From 2002-2008 she worked as the Research Fellow and Manager of the Agreements, Treaties and Negotiated Settlements (ATNS) Project to examine treaty and agreement making with Indigenous Australians and the nature of the rights encompassed by past, present and potential agreements and treaties. Prior to that Odette worked with Australian Government Solicitor in South Australia. Odette holds a Master of Laws from The University of Melbourne and an honours degree in Law and Arts from Flinders University.
