Research is a priority at the ANU College of Law. The Associate Dean (Research), and the College Research Support Team (CReST) are responsible for developing a supportive research environment, encouraging the highest standards of research excellence and helping scholars to achieve their research aspirations and funding goals. Our research output ranges from the empirical to the theoretical, from the doctrinal to the contextual, from the historical to the contemporary and from the local to the global. Work of our scholars is found in the world’s leading journals and in the book lists of the world’s leading law publishers. Our academics are active contributors to public debate and decision-making through the media, submissions to parliament, law reform agencies and other government bodies, and membership of public inquiries. The College’s research culture is expressed in and reinforced by the many seminars, workshops and conferences it hosts and a steady stream of visiting scholars from around the world.
