Anthony O'Donnell

Senior Lecturer, School of Law, La Trobe University

Prior to joining the School of Law at the end of 2005, Anthony held positions at the Centre for Employment and Labour Relations Law and the Centre for Public Policy, at the University of Melbourne, where he worked on several ARC-funded projects in the areas of labour market regulation, social policy and corporate governance.

He has played a key role in an ongoing collaborative project to rethink the subject matter and objectives of labour law. This has resulted in an edited collection, Labour Law and Labour Market Regulation (Federation Press, 2006) which one international reviewer referred to as ‘unquestionably a landmark in Australian labour law scholarship’ and another as a ‘remarkable volume…a book to be read by anyone interested in serious academic thinking about labour law’.

He recently completed a co-authored book on aspects of corporate governance and labour law, to be published by Ashgate in December 2011, and is participating in an international collaborative project on the future of labour law, convened by Katherine Stone (UCLA Law School) and Harry Arthurs (Osgoode Hall Law School).

Anthony is convenor of the Bachelor of Laws Honours program. He is an associate member of the Centre for Employment and Labour Relations Law at the University of Melbourne Law School.
