Tuesday, 9 December, 2014 - 16:30 to 18:00

This annual seminar will provide an outline of recent constitutional developments in several overseas jurisdictions 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.

Speakers: Professor Mark Tushnet  (Harvard Law School), other international visitors speaking will be announced later in the year.

Chair: Professor Rosalind Dixon  (University of New South Wales)

Venue: Federal Court, Queens Square, Sydney, Court 18B
