The TC Beirne School of Law is offering a unique new course in Indonesia. Up to twelve Bachelor of Laws students will be supported by grants to study in Indonesia for two weeks during Summer Semester 2016-17 ($3000 per student). The project will explore issues of anti-corruption, integrity and corporate governance in Indonesia. Students will mix academic study with field-based learning, such as institutional visits and observations. The project will equip students with a distinct advantage for the pursuit of future opportunities in Indonesia and throughout the Indo Pacific.

If you are a potential partner interested in becoming in involved with the project please email Geneviève Murray.

The project is part of the New Colombo Plan Mobility Program. Knowledge of the Indonesian legal system and Indonesia more broadly will be developed through direct learning in Indonesia and through pre-departure courses at UQ led by subject matter experts.

While abroad, students will benefit from the opportunity to engage with government, judicial, and enforcement personnel. Students will be instructed by the Indonesian Judicial Commission, giving an unparalleled insight into the work being done to combat corruption in Indonesia.

Upon their return, students will undertake independent research on key issues relating to anti-corruption, integrity, and corporate governance.

To be eligible for funding, students must:

  • be enrolled in a Bachelor of Laws (or associated dual program) at TC Beirne School of Law
  • be Australian citizens
  • be 18 years of age or older
  • not have previously received a Short Term Mobility Project Grant.

Please note, you do not have to be eligible for funding to participate in the course, but you will have to pay additional expenses.

Registration for Summer Semester 2017-2018 will open late 2017.
