Monash Law academic and mad AFL fan Dr Kate Seear's podcast The Outer Sanctum has been picked up by ABC Radio.
Congratulations to Adjunct Professor the Honourable Nahum Mushin AM who has been made a Member (AM) in the General Division of the Order of Australia.
The Faculty of Law is proud to welcome Professor Jean Allain to Monash University.
Monash Law School's student mooting team has progressed to the semi finals of the 2016 Administrative Appeals Tribunal National Mooting Competition.
The final decision of the Permanent Court of Arbitration in the South China Sea dispute between the Philippines and China is "simply historic", as leading international law of the sea expert Associate Professor Douglas Guilfoyle writes.
Two highly unusual refugee cases are currently before the High Court. These have not yet been the subject of media coverage or academic attention.
The appeals are from asylum seekers in Nauru who are challenging the rejections of their refugee claims by the Refugee Status Review Tribunal of Nauru.
In hearing their appeals, the High Court is taking on a rarely-exercised role: hearing an appeal from a non-Australian court.

"As a federal prosecutor I never came across a drug mule. Or at least I thought I hadn't," says Helen Haslem from Monash Law School.
"As a researcher I came to suspect that drug mules are hiding in plain sight."
In the gig economy, our cars, spare rooms and spare time have become handy money-earners.
But sometimes things don't go as planned.
If you're an Uber driver or Deliveroo cyclist and you injure someone else on the job, who has to cough up the money?

Deputy Director of the Castan Centre for Human Rights Law, Dr Maria O'Sullivan, spent two days following arguments in the High Court's #MarriageEquality hearing.
Here are her thoughts on why the Court ruled in favour of the government's postal survey: goo.gl/ohZtZS
Social media #fail: How far does my duty of care to others extend?
A new beverage is marketed as 'The Snail Inside', with the tagline "Can you stomach the Snail".
An online daredevil hits on a idea. Believing it to contain a dead snail inside, she decides to buy multiple crates of the drink (totalling $15,000), post a gross video of her drinking a whole bottle on social media and then sell the crates to her fans at an inflated price.
But there's a catch. There's no snail inside. When she becomes the target of a social media backlash, labelling her a fake for her stunt, the daredevil suffers a serious personal downfall.
In this fictitious modern-day take on the classic Donoghue v Stevenson negligence case, Monash Law School's leading student advocates present both sides of a landmark legal stoush.
Monash Law School was honoured to host The Hon. Marilyn Warren AC, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Victoria, who judged this inaugural student moot in our new state-of-the-art Moot Court.

Congratulations to our exceptional Law students Sophie Tversky and Hannah McDonald - finalists for Law Student Of The Year at the 2017 Lawyers Weekly Australian Law Awards!
And a huge win for barrister William Lye OAM, Monash Law graduate and chief examiner of Contracts in the Monash JD. William won the national Barrister of the Year award, as well as the prize of prizes - the Lawyers Weekly Excellence Award!
Culminating in a glitzy 700-person event in Sydney, the Australian Law Awards recognise the innovative work of firms and individuals in various practice areas, as well as the outstanding achievements of students.
"It was wonderful to be able to celebrate and meet those in the industry who are driving change and positive impact within our profession," says Sophie. "It was fantastic to represent Monash University."
William says he sees his win as representing something much bigger than an individual award.
"To win the 'best of the best' was just amazing. This was a significant honour because I get to set an example for our diverse Australian community," he says.
"To see that a Chinese Australian can make it to the industry's top – this will inspire a younger generation of Australians, particularly from diverse communities, that they should persist in their goals and never give up."
In an exciting development, Hannah has also made it to the finals of the Lawyers Weekly Women in Law Awards, to be held in October. We congratulate her on this achievement and wish her the best of luck.
