About us

We are proud of our national reputation as a leader in the field of business law. As one of Australia's largest and most versatile business law departments, we offer a comprehensive teaching and research program focusing on commercial law and regulation in the rapidly growing Asia-Pacific region.

Our Department has established a strong reputation for:

According to the Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) Report (2012), the discipline of law received a rating of five-stars (well above world standard). Our staff have won numerous major teaching awards within the Monash Business School and at Monash University. Several of our staff are authors of leading textbooks used throughout Australia and around the world.

Research expertise

The Department's research activities in corporations law, taxation law, employment law, Asian law and international business law are carried out through three research groups. Each group regularly sponsors international symposia and work with partner groups at European, North American, Asian and Australasian universities. These research groups are:

- Asia-Pacific Business Regulation Group

Our expertise in these areas has resulted in the Department receiving a number of national and international competitive research grants. Our active and high quality doctoral program has been recognised as one of the world's best, attracting PhD students from four continents.

Teaching Excellence

The Department of Business Law and Taxation is responsible for business law and taxation teaching in the Monash Business School. The Department teaches units in the undergraduate and graduate programs offered by the Faculty. These units recognise that knowledge of law and taxation is essential for the informed business professional.

The Department of Business Law and Taxation provides Monash business students with a rare opportunity to learn from staff focused on business law, rather than the broader law program.

Engagement and collaboration

Business Law and Taxation staff carry out research activities in conjunction with:

- the business community
- the accounting and legal professions
- government agencies
- social welfare bodies
- international organisations.

Department academics have been seconded to assist government agencies including the Treasury and Australian Taxation Office.

We regularly work with international agencies such as the International Monetary Fund and Asian Development Bank to assist with the development of business and tax laws across the Asia-Pacific region.

(Student Profile)

Yili Luo

Knowledge of business law is important to all business roles, whether these be in accounting, finance, management, human resources, marketing, property, or entrepreneurship.

But often showing you have the right soft skills for a job is also a high priority for employers. I believe that the skills I developed at Monash Business School will enable me to better carry out my job as a Chairman's Assistant. I have learnt how to become more efficient, how to work under pressure, and how to work well in a team. I have become confident in forming effective working relationships.

I have also noticed that I have become more energetic, enthusiastic, and confident towards work. I am more motivated and willing to learn. My course is really developing my skills in research, critical thinking and correlating large amounts of information with complex data. These are important skills in a vast range of professions in commerce and industry.

Studying this degree has trained me to speak with conviction, act with poise and write with purpose. I am mich more strategic in what I do and how I think.

Monash University and Monash Business School have a very good reputation in Beijing, and therefore graduates are sought after in the job market there. I think the skills that you develop at Monash Business School are part of the reason the reputation of graduates is so high.
