ANJeL thanks Bond University Faculty of Law
ANJeL is now a joint initiative of The Australian National University and the University of Sydney. Bond University, the third sponsoring institution from 2010 until September 2015, has become an ANJeL affiliate. Bond University has played a valuable role in supporting ANJeL's activities, including hosting an ANJeL international conference (2010) and running the Gold Coast Seminar on Australian Law (2011-2015). ANJeL thanks the faculty and its colleagues for its past support of ANJeL and looks forward to new collaborative projects in the future.
Leon Wolff, who co-founded ANJeL in 2003 and has served near-continuously as Director since its inception, has resigned from Bond University and has now joined the Queensland University of Technology. He will remain actively involved in ANJeL's teaching and research activities.
ANJeL also announces two new esteemed colleagues on its Advisory Board. Carolyn Stevens, Professor of Japanese Studies at Monash University; and Ian Williams, partner at Herbert Smith Freehills. ANJeL expresses its gratitude to outgoing advisors, Emeritus Professor Meryll Dean of Oxford Brookes University and Michael Ryland, partner at Ashurst.
