Sara Anne Haslinger

LLB (hons)  

Lecturer | Email:

Sara teaches Civil Litigation, Commercial Dispute Resolution and International Commercial Arbitration at the Sydney City School of Law. She is by trade a commercial litigation lawyer and a partner at Shaw Reynolds Legal and Advisory. However, her greatest passion is combining all her research and legal skills into projects that drive social systemic change. She has successfully integrated law, economics, strategy, community engagement, design modelling, human and social developmental theory and dispute resolution into a single offering to help her clients move to the other side of large-scale social problems. This is not a traditional model of consulting, dispute resolution or legal advice. She uses over twenty years expertise in strategic, co-design integral thinking and action driven implementation to deliver outcomes to the human services industry, construction industry and public administrators. She was the 2018 NAWIC Crystal Vision Winner for her contribution to the construction industry.
