Abstract

In this paper, which originated as an after-dinner speech to other Deans, the author reflects on his 15 years as Dean of the ANU College of Law and shares his 'top ten tips' for succeeding in this important and challenging leadership position. Without diminishing the importance of attention to budgetary matters, especially fund raising, and to mundane matters of management and administration, he rather stresses the importance of fostering collegiality, energising one's colleagues, and generally creating an environment in which everyone can thrive and realise their own true, and unique, potential.
