Hossein Esmaeili is an Australian academic with distinct national and international authority in international law (particularly on offshore energy and resources law) and comparative law, particularly Middle Eastern law. A third dimension of his teaching and research is property law. The global impact of his scholarly work can be seen in its use by international and Australian institutions including universities, Australian Courts and Tribunals, United Nations agencies and the United States Congress, and national and international media. The recognition of his academic standing as a leading authority in these areas is demonstrated by his involvement with international organisations and institutions (such as the International Law Association), invitations to various editorial positions in Australia, Asia and Europe, invitations to review books and journal articles and deliver keynotes; supervision of PhD students and by his significant (and collaborative) publications in his areas of expertise and involvement in research projects relating to CALD communities and Australia's relationship with MENA countries. Dr Esmaeili's research aims to promote interdisciplinary collaboration, social impact, and social justice particularly within migrant communities in Australia.
Hossein's teaching philosophy is founded upon helping students to achieve the highest academic standards through active, deep and critical learning in an internationalised world by ensuring effective feedback and incorporating practical work, cultural context, and community, practical and industry engagements.
Hossein teaches in various courses, both in undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, LLB and JD, online, face to face and hybrid in different areas of international law, human rights, law of the sea, property law, real property law, equity and trusts.
