Enhancing International Collaboration: UPH Faculty of Law Partners with Monash University.

Committed to providing internationally recognized higher education, Universitas Pelita Harapan (UPH) Faculty of Law entered a partnership with Monash University’s Faculty of Law in Australia, through the Monash University Law Indonesia Alliance (MULIA). The formal signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for this partnership took place on Friday, July 14, 2023, at the Lippo Village Campus in Tangerang.

The MoU was signed by Monash University Faculty of Law Associate Dean Professor Jean Allain and UPH Faculty of Law Dean Dr. Velliana Tanaya, S.H., M.H. The event was attended by Monash University Faculty of Law Deputy Associate Dean Dr. Nadir Hosen, UPH Law Study Program Head Dr. Vincensia Esti Purnama Sari, S.H., and other fellow faculty members from UPH.

The partnership encompasses several aspects, including the exchange of information and research opportunities; organization of workshops, conferences, and academic discussions; provision of training programs and short courses; student and faculty exchange; as well as professional development programs for academic staff.

Professor Jean expressed his enthusiasm for this partnership, stating, “This collaboration exemplifies our commitment to strengthening ties with the best higher education institutions in Indonesia, particularly in the field of Law. UPH is one of the top private universities with an outstanding Faculty of Law,” emphasized Professor Jean.

In addition to UPH, six other faculties of law from Indonesian universities are also members of this alliance, including Universitas Airlangga (UNAIR), Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM), Universitas Hasanuddin (UNHAS), Universitas Indonesia (UI), Universitas Padjadjaran (UNPAD), and Universitas Sam Ratulangi (UNSRAT).

Moreover, Professor Jean emphasized that this collaboration aims not only to share experiences and knowledge about Australian law but also to gain insights into Indonesian law and culture. He envisions that this partnership, spanning the next five years, will bring benefits to all members of the MULIA alliance. Going forward, the Faculty of Law at Monash University and UPH will hold further discussions to solidify and implement their collaborative efforts.

In response to Professor Jean’s remarks, Dr. Velliana highlighted the significant value of this collaboration in enhancing the capabilities of educators and students at UPH. “We possess competent human resources, proficient English-speaking instructors, and faculty members, along with internationally acclaimed programs. These assets contribute to our growing recognition on the global stage,” emphasized Dr. Velliana.

Dr. Velliana also views this partnership as an opportunity to materialize various collaborative initiatives, including dual-degree programs at the graduate level. She is hopeful that such programs can be realized through international cooperation with Monash University.
