Dr Sarah Moulds is a senior lecturer in law (UniSA: Justice + Society) and co-founder of the Rights Resource Network SA. She is passionate about parliaments and connecting citizens and communities with law makers. Her most recent book, Committees of Influence, explores the important role parliamentary committees play in rights protection in Australia. Dr Moulds has been actively engaged in local, national and international conversations about emergency law-making in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the role parliaments can and should play in holding governments to account. In 2022 Dr Moulds was awarded a Churchill Fellowship to explore how to empower young people to engage effectively with Australian parliaments.

Dr Moulds's career has a strong law reform focus and includes seven years at the Law Council of Australia, including as Director of Criminal Law and Human Rights. More recently, she has worked as a Senior Project Officer at the South Australian Law Reform Institute.

Dr Moulds assisted the Year 12 Legal Studies class in developing their research skills to improve their major piece of work for the year, The Inquiry.
