Jane Garling formerly practised as a lawyer and has extensive experience working as a solicitor in the area of dispute resolution. She also worked as a lecturer in the Faculties of Law at Macquarie University and the University of Technology Sydney.

In both her commercial and academic roles, her area of interest was the strategic management of significant claims to ensure their efficient and appropriate resolution, including the wide-ranging use of alternative dispute resolution initiatives.

An interest in cultural heritage led to her long-term involvement with The Eryldene Trust, a not-for-profit organisation, including membership of its board, and her membership of the Library Council and Foundation. Jane is currently undertaking postgraduate research into the life and times of artist Augustus Earle (1793–1838) whose works feature in the collection of the State Library.
