In 2019, our HDR students celebrated an array of doctoral study success. From graduations – Dr Kirste Pavlovic for her thesis ‘Taking Exception to the Rule: A Poststructural Analysis of Legitimacy in Fiji’s New Legal Order’, to confirmations, Emma Babbage ‘Wellbeing, Work and Law’, Tran Nguyen, ‘Corporate Personality in Vietnamese Law: A Comparative Approach’, and Jonathan Harlen, ‘The Law of the Serpent: Te Nakahi, and the Re-Storying of Sovereignty in Aoteoroa/New Zealand. As well, James Moylan satisfactorily passed his In-candidature review ( ‘A semiotic interrogation of “the history” of the law and economics movement’).
Emma (above, at ALAA and LSAANZ) and Tran (below, at the Asian Conference on Business and Economic Studies), gave presentations to scholarly conferences in Australia and Vietnam respectively. Tran had six papers published in the Vietnamese-language business monthly, The Saigon Times, while Emma has submitted a journal article – currently under review with the Journal of ALAA.
Emma also represented the SLJ in the annual 3MT competition and performed splendidly!
And last but not least, Kay Danes, (‘Professionalisation: A qualitative inquiry of the Australian Humanitarian Sector’) attended the 2019 Asian Pacific Leadership Conference in Melbourne.
Congratulations to all our HDR students for all their hard work, and with special congratulations to Dr Kirste Pavlovic and her SLJ Principal Supervisor, Associate Professor Jennifer Nielsen, pictured below with SLJ Dean of Law and Head of School, Professor William MacNeil.
