Lance Jones is an Adjunct Fellow of the SCU School of Law and Justice, and a Barrister working in Criminal, Family, Mental Health and Intellectual Disability Law, having completed his Masters Degree in Law from ANU where he specialised in Court Advocacy and Human Rights. Lance is also the Founding Director of COMREC Australia Pty Ltd, South Australia's largest private provider of developmental and advocacy programmes for people with an Intellectual Disability. As a qualified Social Worker and Outdoor Education Teacher, he has also worked extensively with young people "at risk", developing a series of award winning outdoor adventure and recreation programmes using "the outdoors" as a conduit for personal development and growth. Lance has been working with such groups in either a legal, social welfare or outdoor adventure setting for the last 35 years. Lance is lectures, tutors and acts as Unit Assessor in a number of Law subjects for the School of Law and Justice at SCU. His current focus is the development of CPD and other training programmes for professionals working with people with either Mental Health, Intellectual Disability or their comorbidities. And, in a completely unrelated matter, his frivilous and amusing book entitled "What? No Kangaroos?", and his rather more serious biography entitled "The Strong Shall Live" are both currently available at as either a Paperback or E-book.
