Universitas Islam Internasional Indonesia (UIII) and Melbourne Law School signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to establish a partnership between two distinguished institutions. The MoU was signed by the Dean of Melbourne Law School, Prof. Matthew Harding, and the Rector of UIII, Prof. Jamhari, on Wednesday, November 22, 2023.
Prof. Matthew was accompanied by Tim Lindsay, professor and director of the Centre for Indonesian Law, Islam and Society at the Melbourne Law School. Before signing the MoU with UIII, Melbourne Law School signed the MoU with some universities in Indonesia.
Prof. Matthew said that this MoU does two things: first, it formalizes and consolidates the relationships and networks that have already been built here between the two institutions. Secondly, he feels that this MoU sets us up for fascinating conversations about how UIII and Melbourne Law School will collaborate in the future.
“For me, this will include some work that we can do now to think about how well academic researchers in both institutions can get together to undertake research projects and build exciting new research partnerships. And for me, that's going to be a priority. And Professor Lindsey and I look forward to continuing the conversations about that,” he said.
UIII continues to build a strong partnerships with several domestic and international institutions. In the past months, UIII has established a partnership with the Ritsumaken University in Japan, Perdana University in Malaysia, Al-Qasimia University in UAE, Universitas Islam Negeri Sultan Maulana Hasanuddin Banten, and many more.
Partnerships with several institutions in Indonesia and internationally will be established in the future to build a strong connection between UIII and the world, as the vision said to be a world-leading institution that produces innovative discoveries, shape a brighter future, and contributes to the betterment of human life and civilization through exceptional education and breakthrough research.
