Tuesday, 10 December, 2013 - 16:30 to 18:00
New South Wales

This annual seminar will provide an outline of recent constitutional developments in three jurisdictions — the United States, Canada and New Zealand — that are of key interest to Australian constitutional lawyers. Experts from each jurisdiction will report on three of four major constitutional cases argued or decided over the last year; changes in the composition and politics of each country's highest court; and flag the state of debate over constitutional reform. Together, the panellists will also discuss the potential relevance of these comparative developments for current issues in Australian constitutional law.
