Melbourne Law School celebrates research funding success

Melbourne Law School has recently received the most funding Australia-wide in Law for the second year in a row in the recent suite of Australian Research Council (ARC) funding schemes. The law school attracted two out of the three Future Fellowships awarded in Law across the country, and its first Discovery Early Career Researcher Award.

Melbourne Law School Dean Professor Carolyn Evans said that the success with ARC grants again this year was evidence of the national and international importance of the research being carried out in the law school and the high level of respect for MLS researchers.

“These grants are highly competitive,” said Professor Evans, “and the colleagues who have been awarded research funding had to demonstrate to the ARC that their research would be at the cutting edge of the field.”

“The grants cover a wide range of legal sub-disciplines including private law, international law, consumer protection law and Chinese law. The breath of expertise in the law school is a real source of pride for us.”

The achievements are due not only to the passion and diligence of the individual researchers, but also to the many people who devoted a substantial amount of time, effort and skill to assist the applicants. The process has seen a range of Melbourne Law School individuals assisting and supporting each other, from academics who acted as senior readers to research assistants who helped in preparing individual applications.
