About The Michael Whincop Memorial Lecture Series
The Michael Whincop Memorial Lecture was inaugurated in 2004 to honour the contribution that the late Professor Michael Whincop made to the development of legal scholarship. The lecture series aims to celebrate Michael's commitment to research excellence and innovation.
Professor Michael Whincop (1968-2003)
Professor Michael Whincop was a leading Australian and international scholar, particularly in the areas of economic analysis of law and company law. He joined the Griffith Law School in 1994 as a Lecturer and was promoted three times within only eight years, being promoted to Full Professor in 2002 at the age of 33.
Michael researched in a wide range of areas and published very extensively. He made substantial contributions to the development of the Griffith Law School, particularly in establishing its research reputation and in implementing its policies concerning excellence in teaching and learning.
Michael’s well-organised approach to teaching and his dry wit is fondly remembered by his former students.
