Professor Bryan Horrigan became Dean of the Faculty of Law at Monash University in early January 2013. He was previously the Louis Waller Chair of Law and Associate Dean (Research) at Monash University's Faculty of Law in Melbourne, Australia. In that role, he established the Faculty's Commercial Law Group.
Professor Horrigan has both academic expertise and professional experience in public and corporate law and governance from Australian, transnational, and cross-disciplinary perspectives.
Formerly a long-standing law firm and governmental consultant, Bryan has advised commercial lawyers and their corporate and governmental clients on issues ranging from contractual good faith and unconscionable business conduct to corporate social responsibility and rights-based scrutiny of legislation. He has given invitational addresses at Oxford University, Harvard University, Stanford University, and the Wharton Business School.
Bryan was previously appointed by the current Australian Government to an expert panel asked to investigate the regulation of unconscionable business conduct and problematic franchising behaviours. The Australian Government's acceptance of that expert panel's recommendations resulted in changes to major pieces of national economic regulation in the form of the Competition and Consumer Act, Australian Securities and Investments Commission Act, and Franchising Code of Conduct.
