Law has played county cricket in England for so long now that he has become a British citizen and is no longer classed as an overseas player.
He played one Test for Australia and 54 one-day internationals before being dropped in favour of equally talented batsmen, with his last appearance coming against England in Melbourne in 1999. Made an unbeaten half-century in his only Test against Sri Lanka in 1995.
Started his county career with Essex in 1996 before moving to Lancashire in 2002 and topped the first class batting averages in 1999 and 2003, with 73.32 and 91.00 respectively.
Also played for Queensland in the Australian domestic season, where he was captain for several years.
Scored the fastest century in Australian domestic cricket in 2003, taking 69 balls and beating his own previous record.
The most successful captain in Australian domestic cricket and Queensland's all-time leading run-scorer in first-class cricket, he was named as one of the Wisden Cricketers of the Year in 1998.
Was Lancashire's leading run-scorer in the totesport League in 2005 and only missed one Frizzell County Championship match as the Red Rose county won the Division Two title.
Also Lancashire's leading run-scorer in the Twenty20 Cup, with 387 including one century, as they reached the final before losing to Somerset.
Topped 1,000 championship runs again in 2006 and was awarded the Order of Australia in early 2007 for his services to cricket in Australia.
A stand was named in his honour at Allan Border Field, Queensland's home ground, in 2007 - the year Law enjoyed a benefit for Lancashire.
In 2007 he struck 1,277 LV County Championship runs averaging 63.85, which included a superb 206 against Yorkshire at Headingley Carnegie.
Law signed a new one-year contract with Lancashire for the 2008 season and was subsequently named captain.
However, he endured a frustrating season with the bat and was not offered a deal for 2009, partly due to his connections with a rebel league.
But there are still some runs in him - a fact recognised by Derbyshire, who snapped him up for their Friends Provident Trophy and Twenty20 Cup campaigns.
He duly scored 222 runs in the FPT at an average of 44, while also chipping in with 222 runs in the Twenty20 Cup.
