Dr Moschoudis is an Adjunct Professor at Torrens University Australia. He is the Principal Supervisor for DBL703 at the Australian Graduate School of Leadership at Torrens University Australia, where he teaches Critical Reasoning and Ethics.
Dr Moschoudis has over two decades of experience in the provision of leadership, guidance, and legal professional advice at senior levels in both the public and private sector. He is legally qualified, and a practising Barrister, who was called to the NSW Bar in 2000. He specialises in commercial (business/corporate), administrative and criminal law. As part of his doctorate, which he undertook through AGSL at Torrens University Australia, he developed an issue diagnosis and problem-solving model known as the ‘Strategic Objective Analysis and Implementation Model’ (SOAIM). This tool has been successfully applied in project oriented real-world environments in both the public and private sectors.
He provides advice and guidance to such entities as PwC Australia in asset realisation, insolvency, bankruptcy, public examinations, trust structures, and litigation.
He has also provided advice and guidance to the private sector in fields as diverse as manufacturing, imports, service industries, product development, asset realisation, mining, trade, and medical research. His guidance to these organisations has included governance, business ethics, corporate structures, trusts, partnerships, joint ventures, resource management, licensing, intellectual property, insolvency law, risk management, product development and liability, leases, contracts, mortgages and charges, litigation, human resource management, and contractual dispute resolution.
Dr Moschoudis provides advice and guidance to local governments in New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria. Such guidance has included governance, ethics, development of procedures and policy, realisation of property, government imposts, dispute management, mediation and resolution, contract formulation, interpretation of government policy, legislation, administrative law and recommended reforms.
Dr Moschoudis is on the board of the ACNR Foundation, a not-for-profit research facilitator which funds and brings together leading global clinicians and researchers, with the objective of developing treatments for children and adults who suffer from CASK genetic disorders.
For a period of some 12 years, he participated in the Practical Legal Education Program, where he supervised and trained law students in the completion of their practical legal education. This included training in research, critical reasoning, analysis, ethics, trial preparation, and case theory development.
Prior to practising law, Dr Moschoudis was a member of the NSW Police Force, undertaking duties as a covert operative, and was seconded to the Major Crime Squad (Sth) and later the Drug Enforcement Agency (Special Forces). Following this, he took up a full-time position with the Special Operations Group (SOG’s – Suth). As an operational officer, he has worked jointly with ADF (UCO), whilst also providing operational support to ASIO operatives and Special Branch (NSWPF) as it was then known. Following his time in operational policing, he was later designated as a prosecutor (NSWPF), appearing in a wide variety of criminal and civil cases, acting for internal clients, such as the NSW Police Commissioner, and external clients, such as NSW Fisheries and the Centennial Park and Moore Park Trust.
He has worked with the Sydney Regional Aboriginal Corporation Legal Services and has participated in the NSW Bar Association’s Pro Bono Scheme for over a decade.
Dr Moschoudis has written and presented papers over the past 20 years to legal practitioners at Continuing Legal Education Forums. These seminar papers have included leadership in the law, business practices, legal procedure, and substantive law.
