ANU College of Law Professor Desmond Manderson has been awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.
The Medal was struck in honour of the 60th anniversary of the Queen on the throne to honour significant contributions and achievements by Canadians.
Approximately 250 medals were awarded by the Lieutenant Governor of Quebec, ‘so as to honour in a visible and tangible way, those who have contributed to build our society.’
Professor Manderson held a senior Canada Research Chair in the Faculty of Law at McGill University for ten years and was foundation Director of the Institute for the Public Life of Arts and Ideas at the University.
He was elected a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada last year for his pioneering work on the interdisciplinary study of law and the humanities.
Professor Manderson is now ARC Future Fellow in the ANU College of Law and the Research School of Humanities and Arts, and has just inaugurated a new law and humanities network at ANU.
