The Australian and New Zealand School of Government (ANZSOG) has announced that Arie Freiberg has ended his teaching role after 15 years as Subject Leader of the Executive Master of Public Administration (EMPA) subject, Governing by the Rules.

In a statement, the ANZSOG said Professor Freiberg (pictured) had been a great supporter of the EMPA, enriching the program with his excellence and commitment to quality learning and teaching.

“Professor Freiberg’s contribution to ANZSOG has been one small aspect of a very busy life of leadership and scholarship,” the School statement said.

It said Professor Freiberg was an Emeritus Professor at Monash University, a fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences in Australia, and a fellow of the Australian Academy of Law.

“His former roles include Dean of the Faculty of Law at Monash University and Dean of the Faculty of Arts at the University of Melbourne,” it said.

“Arie is a leading expert on sentencing and the criminal justice system.

“He was Chair of the Tasmanian Sentencing Advisory Council from 2013 to December 2021 and has been Chair of the Victorian Sentencing Advisory Council since 2004.”

ANZSOG aid hundreds of students had benefited from Professor Freiberg’s expertise, scholarship, engaging teaching style and sense of humour.

“ANZSOG is very appreciative of Arie’s immense contribution to the EMPA, and to public sector leadership in Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand,” the School said.
