[extract] We have never accepted at Bond that good research and scholarship is an excuse for poor teaching. Nor, however, have we accepted good teaching as an excuse for failures in research and scholarship. The job of a legal academic is to communicate ideas to the wider legal community as well as to educate students. In its short history, the School has forged a strong reputation as a centre for research and scholarship. This Law Review has made a major contribution to that reputation. The Review was launched in the first year of the School's operations. The tenth anniversary for the School was therefore also the tenth anniversary for the Review. The standard of the volumes has been consistently high. All of those involved in its production over the years are to be congratulated.
