Tracey’s primary research interest is in the field of banking and finance law. She is writing a series of articles (with the view to potentially collating into a monograph) which explore the impact of the changing global economic landscape on different aspects of the Australian Financial System (AFS). Significantly, she will examine the issue of social costs of the inadequacies of regulation within the AFS, particularly, the banking sector.
Coming to ANU from a background in private practice, Tracey also incorporates into her research work that addresses the ongoing ethical and moral obligations on senior practitioners in relation to newly admitted and junior practitioners. She intends to develop further the practical issue that a practitioner’s ethics obligations extend much further than that of simply complying with the professional conduct rules and regulations.
