Angus Macinnis is a lawyer in private practice in a commercial boutique firm in Sydney, where he holds the title of Director of Dispute Resolution. He has more than 20 years' experience in the resolution of commercial disputes and assisting clients to manage regulatory and compliance issues. He has a particular interest in alternative dispute resolution, including arbitration, and holds a Graduate Diploma in International Commercial Arbitration. He is also the co-chair of the International Trade and Business Committee of the International Law Section of the Law Council of Australia.

At the Thomas More Law School, his role as Legal Professional Mentor is focused on coaching teams in professional skills competitions including mooting and client interviewing. He is the co-coach of the TMLS team in the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot, with the TMLS team in 2021 finishing in the top 32 law schools in the world (which was also the second-best performance by an Australian law school).

Before joining TMLS, he coached mooting teams at two other Sydney universities, and the quality of the students he has been fortunate to work with is demonstrated by the fact that teams he has coached have been good enough (despite his coaching) to win the Sir Harry Gibbs National Mooting Competition (twice) and the International Maritime Law Arbitration Moot. Some of these individual students have also been recognised with best speaker honours in the International Maritime Law Arbitration Moot (twice), the Sir Harry Gibbs National Mooting Competition, and (jointly) the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot. He is also the author of the chapters on written advocacy and oral advocacy in the Australian Red Cross Handbook on International Humanitarian Law Mooting.
