Professor Millbank is a leading international expert and researcher  across family, reproduction and human rights law, making a distinctive contribution to broadening legal understandings of family and developing new approaches to relationship recognition in law. Many of her recommendations have been implemented in Australia and elsewhere in the past decade. Jenni’s socio-legal scholarship reflects her on-going commitment to developing laws that reflect and adapt to social needs through research that is empirically based, responsive to community concerns, and practical in application. She is a lead researcher in an ongoing ARC-funded project ‘Regulating relations – Forming Families Inside and Outside of the Reach of the Law’ which has interviewed dozens of Australian parents through surrogacy and surrogates.
