Team Australia was a founding member of the INC consortium, thanks in large part to the vision of ANJeL Advisor and co-founder, Professor Kent Anderson. His commitment in the early years of the competition enabled successive Team Australia cohorts to participate in this prestigious competition. Current ANJeL Director Professor Luke Nottage and A/Professor Stacey Steele have been key academic supporters of Team Australia. ANJeL advisor Professor Veronica Taylor was the lead coach for Team Australia 2013-2019 working with ANJeL alumni Kieran Pender and Timothy Magarry; ANJeL alumna Carol Lawson is the current lead coach, working with ANJeL alumna Yukino Kanazawa.
ANJeL is a network of over 350 scholars, practitioners, policy-makers, senior students and others interested in Japanese law from Australia, Japan, and the rest of the world.
