BOOK LAUNCH: Sir Owen Dixon's Legacy


Authors:

Dr John Eldridge, Sydney Law School

Tim Pilkington, Associate Lecturer, Sydney Law School


Key address: Bret Walker SC


Sir Owen Dixon is the most renowned jurist Australia has ever produced. His lasting significance stems not only from a mastery of the technique of the common law, but from his involvement in many of the most important decisions in Australia’s legal history. During the course of his long tenure on the High Court of Australia, Dixon oversaw the development of virtually every branch of the law. This volume contributes to the understanding of Dixon’s jurisprudence, his judicial method and present-day significance. It ranges widely over the various branches of the law which were enriched by his contributions. The contributors include leading scholars and jurists from across Australia.
