2011 Public Law Weekend

Australian Capital Territory


On the weekend marking the 10th Anniversary since the events of September 11, 2011 this is an opportunity to reflect upon the state of Public law, 10 years on.

The Public law weekend is a great opportunity for academics and practitioners of Public law, throughout the country, to gather and meet one another and be stimulated by a great program.

There will be a great range of speakers and topics. In addition to the program, on the evening of the Friday 9th September the Annual Geoffrey Sawer lecture will be delivered by the Chief Justice of Canada - The Right Hon Madam Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin, PC. Further details of the Sawer lecture here.

Please note on the registration page (which has a link to the program and all necessary information) the early bird rate timing, and also, a reminder to practitioners that attendance at this conference is relevant to your continuing legal education requirements.
