Impact in the Law and Research

Research that serves society.

We believe that excellent legal research should reach beyond academia to contribute to the advancement of both the law and greater society.

Monash Law conducts and supports large amounts of evidence-based and other research for the common good, for people and organisations who most need it. Our academics and students make significant contributions through public submissions and expertise-based advocacy to the public goods of community awareness-raising on matters of law and justice, and to numerous public and parliamentary, policy-making, law-making, and law reform inquiries.

Our research expertise is housed in eight key Faculty organs.

Our researchers collaborate across disciplines and universities, as well as with governments, legal professionals, and other industry and community organisations. We also undertake influential competitive grant projects and carry out contract research for community, government, and corporate partners.
