Welcome

The Law, Literature and Humanities Association of Australasia (LLHAA) is the premier organisation for scholars within Australia, New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific investigating the intersections between law and culture.

A community of scholars

The LLHAA welcomes members at all stages in their academic career from any discipline interested in law, jurisprudence, art, culture, history or society.

Our membership is diverse and includes legal and non-legal academics, artists, lawyers, historians, students, early career researchers and pioneers in interdisciplinary studies.

  • We are dedicated to promoting rigorous, critical academic research.
  • We provide a platform for the discussion of ideas – and encourage scholarship from all standpoints.
  • We encourage postgraduate students and those new to legal scholarship through bursaries, conferences and mentorship.
