George Gilligan

 

Dr George Gilligan has been a Senior Research Fellow in the University of Melbourne’s Centre for Corporate Law and Securities Regulation (CCSLR) since December 2014. George joined CCSLR from the Centre for Law, Markets and Regulation at UNSW Law where he was a Senior Research Fellow.

Before commencing at UNSW Law in May 2012 George spent thirteen years in the Department of Business Law and Taxation at Monash University as a Senior Research Fellow, after initially commencing at Monash as a Logan Research Fellow in December 1998. Also, during his time at Monash George taught in the postgraduate program of the Monash Law School and supervised several Ph,D students to successful completion of their Ph.D candidature. Prior to working at Monash University George taught and researched at the University of Cambridge, Exeter University and Middlesex University in the UK; and La Trobe University and the University of Melbourne in Australia.

George's research interests centre on: governance; regulatory theory and practice, especially in relation to the financial services sector; climate change; white-collar crime; organised crime; and corruption. He has published extensively in these areas (see links to cv and publications), conducted numerous field research projects examining the praxis of regulation and appeared as an expert witness before Commonwealth of Australia Senate and Parliamentary Joint Committees.

His major research projects in these core areas of research interest, (which have included commissions from government agencies as well as competitive research grants), have, over the last ten years in particular, centred upon normative issues in the regulation of the financial services sector and related developments in multi-lateral governance. These have given him the experience of successfully designing and conducting large-scale research studies in Australia and overseas. George completed his Ph.D and M.Phil studies in the the Faculty of Law at The University of Cambridge and received his MA degree from La Trobe University.
