Property industry to benefit from new partnership

29 Nov 2018

A three-year partnership between The University of Queensland Law School and national law firm Holding Redlich will provide new research opportunities for students interested in property law.

The collaboration will produce research in emerging and challenging areas of property law, and will contribute to legal reform in Queensland and beyond.

UQ environment and property law researcher Dr Justine Bell-James said the partnership would build the expertise of young lawyers in property law.

“This will give talented law students with a keen interest in property law an opportunity build connections with the profession,” Dr Bell-James said.

“Students will work in close partnership with lawyers from Holding Redlich and staff from the UQ Law School to set the research agenda, undertake the research, and produce high-impact research outputs.

“The partnership will generate materials which are beneficial to Holding Redlich’s practice as well as traditional scholarly outputs. 

“It will also provide students with an opportunity to see how cutting-edge legal research can have a demonstrable impact in legal practice.”  

Holding Redlich National Managing Partner Ian Robertson said the partnership was a great fit for the firm.

“Holding Redlich has one of Australia’s leading property legal practices,” Mr Robertson said.

“Partnering with one of the country’s leading law schools to further research in property law makes a lot of sense.

“Through this partnership, our lawyers and UQ law students will have the opportunity to collaborate on research that will change the legal landscape.

“Holding Redlich is very much looking forward to working with UQ in the years ahead.”
