The Department of Business Law and Taxation was created as an independent department within the Faculty of Business and Economics in 1997. This reflected the growing importance of business law as a core element in the practice and study of business.
Since our foundation we have established an enviable reputation for high quality research and teaching in the fields of business law and taxation.
We now have over 50 full-time academic staff spread across all Monash campuses. Our head office is situated at the Caulfield campus.
Our fundamental teaching role is to provide business law and taxation subjects to non-law students studying business degrees (both undergraduate and postgraduate) in accounting, banking, economics, management and marketing. In 2001 we successfully introduced an undergraduate degree in business law, the Bachelor of Business (Law).
Our primary areas of research include corporations law, taxation, employment law and international business law.
