Kath Hall is a senior academic at the Australian National University (ANU) College of Law. In 2011 she completed her PhD at ANU, focusing on the regulation and psychology of lawyer dishonesty in Australia. Kath holds an Honours Degree in Law from the University of Adelaide and a Masters Degree in Law from the University of London. Kath's other primary area of research is transnational anti-corruption law. During her Fellowship with the Center, Kath will conduct empirical research on the implementation of anti-corruption legislation by large law firms in Australia. In particular, Kath will focus on the systems-based or compliance aspects of anti-corruption regulation and her empirical research will explore organizational attitudes and resistance to such change. The term "resistance" is used in this project to cover a wide range of behavior including rationalization, avoidance, defiance and game-playing. Psychological research suggests that such behaviors are often a strategic response to situations of external regulation.
