Australian Law Reform Commission

Justice Sarah Derrington, president of the Australian Law Reform Commission ( has offered three places for students to work with the ALRC on some of their current inquiries.

The Australian Law Reform Commission is a federal agency that reviews Australia’s laws to ensure they provide improved access to justice for all Australians by making laws and related processes more equitable, modern, fair and efficient.

Your work would include research and other written tasks, with the opportunity to attend consultation meetings (if held in Melbourne) as well as contribute to law reform papers and reports.

You would be supervised by Jeff Giddings (Associate Dean [Experiential Education] and Professor of Law at Monash University) with direct oversight from Tess Van Geelen (Legal Officer at the ALRC).

This is a very limited opportunity that will only be offered to selected students. The Placement location will be at Monash Law Clinics Melbourne (at Monash Chambers, 555 Lonsdale St)
