2017 Fellow Reports
In 2017 the Law Foundation granted two full Fellowships.
Fiona McDonald undertook a Master of Laws program at The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) which commenced in September 2018. Fiona's desire was to develop specialised expertise in the complex public governance issues arising at the intersection of the criminal law and constitutional and administrative law. The particular blend of courses on offer at LSE held particular attraction by offering both traditional constitutional law courses along with courses in criminal justice and government regulation.

Riana Cermak undertook a 9 month Masters-level Bachelor of Civil Law course at Oxford University commencing in September 2018. Course topics included Comparative Human Rights, Human Rights at Work and International Criminal Law. Riana's final elective topic involved research focused on the implications of introducing a UK-style Modern Slavery Act in Australia and how this will be implemented and coexist with Australian's criminal code, which differs from the UK Act in some material respects.
