Professor Jennnifer Hill reappointed to Federal Government Panel



22 April 2010

Sydney Law School would like to congratulate Professor Jennifer Hill on her reappointment to the Corporations and Markets Advisory Committee (CAMAC).

CAMAC is receiving considerable attention at the moment, in view of the fact that last week on 16 April 2010, the Federal Government released it response to the Productivity Commission (PC) Report on Executive Remuneration.

In that response, the government stated that it intended to use CAMAC as its expert panel to advise on various legislative changes relating to executive remuneration, including review of key regulatory aspects of disclosure requirements under section 300A of the Corporations Act 2001.

In his announcement of new appointments, the Minister for Financial Services, Superannuation and Corporate Law, Chris Bowen MP, stated that "The PC recommended the establishment of an expert panel to review section 300A but, in CAMAC, the Government already has a panel of first-class individuals who have the knowledge and expertise to consider these sorts of matters."

Professor Jennifer Hill has been a member of the Legal Subcommittee of CAMAC since 1995.

Professor of Corporate Law at the University of Sydney, she teaches, and has written widely, in corporate law and corporate governance, and has been a Visiting Professor at a number of US law schools, including the University of Virginia, the University of Texas at Austin and Vanderbilt University.
