ANU Law School’s Professor Kim Rubenstein has been inducted into the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia (ASSA) for her distinguished contribution to the law and to society.
Professor Rubenstein was one of 36 new Fellows – 19 women and 17 men – elected this year whose work has significantly advanced research knowledge and developed new approaches to disciplines including law.
“This is a fantastic achievement and I am sure you would all like to join me in congratulating Kim on this honour,” ANU College of Law Dean, Professor Sally Wheeler, said.
ASSA President, Professor Glenn Withers AO, said the "scholars elected to Fellowship have each made contributions of excellence, as recognised by their peers, in an exhaustive electoral process".
The New Fellows of the Academy will be formally welcomed and inducted at the Academy’s general meeting and annual symposium to be held in Canberra from 12-14 November 2018.
Professor Rubenstein is currently in Israel, where she will shortly commence her term as a Lady Davis Visiting Professor at Hebrew University.
While there, she will teach a comparative citizenship law course and also start a pilot version in Israel on oral histories with Trailblazing Women Lawyers, based on the unique Australian project she led.
