Department of Business Law and Taxation

We conduct business law and taxation research within Monash Business School. 

Our researchers undertake rigorous legal research that is of both international and domestic importance. We work in conjunction with the business community, accounting and legal professions, government agencies, social welfare bodies and international organisations.

We have a vibrant research culture and regularly sponsor international symposia, as well as host a range of research seminars.


Our academic staff are among the top in their field, globally. They have consulted with governments and international organisations and institutions on topics ranging from taxation policy and law to labour law reform and human rights mechanisms.

We're committed to offering high-quality supervision to students undertaking a higher degree by research. Our expert academic staff currently supervise 31 PhD students on a range of research topics across the field of business law and taxation.

Our main departmental research strengths are:

  • banking, consumer and commercial law
  • corporate law and corporate social responsibility
  • taxation law and policy
  • workplace and industrial relations law
  • comparative business law, with a particular focus on the Asian region.


Across these strengths, we have a strong focus on research collaborations, which we foster primarily through our three research groups:

Our collaborations also extend to industry; we are committed to engaging with industry through forming research connections with government, industry, and professional bodies.
