Governance research program

The Governance Research Program (GRP) is made up of academic staff members and research students in the Victoria Law School.

We aim to improve governance of the private and public sectors through the use of independent academic research, consultancies and postgraduate teaching.

The Governance Research Program focuses on:

  • publishing original research and commissioned reports
  • teaching and supervising postgraduate students

We conduct independent research across a number of areas, including:

  • governance and regulation
  • the scholarship of legal education

Journal of Law & Governance

The Governance Research Program manages the Journal of Law and Governance – an online peer-reviewed journal which publishes research articles in the following fields:

  • corporate governance
  • ethical issues arising from these areas.
