The UWA Law School's Taxation Law and Policy Research Hub was created to encourage research and teaching in taxation and related policy issues. Working closely with the profession and partner organisations in Australia and internationally, the group coordinates and supports the School's taxation law seminars, publications and research grants.
What Do We Do?
The Taxation law and Policy Hub was set up with the following objectives in mind:
- To encourage and support academic tax publications by our members.
- To assist staff in the taxation law field to acquire competitive research funding and carry out contracted research.
- To be closely involved in the delivery and development of higher degrees by research programs.
- To provide direct logistical and academic support to candidates enrolled in higher degrees by research.
- To foster and disseminate academic taxation law research through organising conference, seminars and colloquia, as well as joint events with other institutions.
For further details of the Hub's research activities, please refer to the profile pages of individual Hub members.
If you are an academic or researcher who is not based in Western Australia, the UWA Law School hosts a number of Visiting Scholars each year. The Taxation Law and Policy Hib encourages applications from tax-oriented scholars.
