The seminar will explore why Australia fared so well in the crisis compared to other common law jurisdictions. The answer to this question has been that Australia was "lucky" in that its economy was buoyed by China's demand for resources. However there are a number of other significant but often under-appreciated factors which contributed to Australia's resilience during the crisis, including legal structures and reform; financial market regulation; banking history; and corporate governance.
Jennifer Hill is Professor of Corporate Law at Sydney Law School and a Director of the Ross Parsons Centre. She writes widely in the field of corporate law and governance, and has taught at several US law schools, including Vanderbilt, University of Virginia, University of Texas and Cornell. This seminar will be based on her recent co-authored book The Regulatory Aftermath of the Global Financial Crisis (Cambridge University Press, 2012).
