Melbourne Uni Launches Indonesian Law Centre
The new Centre for Indonesian Law, Islam and Society has launched at the University of Melbourne’s Melbourne Law School.
The centre aims to become a global leader in research into Indonesian law and governance, paying particular attention to the state legal system, Islamic legal traditions and their relationships to Indonesian society.
It will also act as a think-tank and will work to improve community understanding of issues related to Indonesian law, Islam and society.
The centre – which is linked to Melbourne Law School’s Asian Law Centre – was previously called the Centre for Islamic Law and Society, but changed its name to better reflect the focus of its research efforts and seminar programs.
It will run research seminars presented by students, visiting academics and experts in the field throughout the year.
