The Private Law Research and Policy Group is a group at UNSW Law. The Group was established in December 2004 to foster research and scholarship in the area of private law.
We define the term "private law" in a broad way to mean the legal rules and principles that govern the relationships between individuals in society, or between individuals and the state in those situations where the state is afforded no greater privileges than a private person. The Research Group aims to encourage the development of a wide diversity of perspectives on private law, from the analysis of legal doctrine to theoretical and empirical studies. The Group is particularly interested in highlighting research into policy and law reform in the area of private law.
