The program in corporate law and financial regulation builds on the leading work of the former Centre for Corporate Law. It undertakes and promotes research on corporate law and financial regulation, both in Australia and internationally. The program provides a network and focal point for those working in these areas, including the legal and business community, researchers, regulators, policy makers, and teachers.

The activities of the program include teaching, a strong research program (encompassing extensive publications and grants), conducting conferences and seminars, and providing corporate law resources via the program website. Members of the program teach, or coordinate the teaching of, more than 20 specialist subjects in the JD and MLM programs at Melbourne Law School.

The program is overseen by Associate Director Professor Rosemary Langford, who welcomes any enquiries about the work of the program.

The Centre for Corporate Law was established in 1996 and merged with other commercial law research programs at Melbourne Law School to form the Melbourne Centre for Commercial Law in 2022.
