About this event

We are pleased to welcome you to the 2022 Causation Conference, sponsored by Herbert Smith Freehills. the Australian Academy of Law and The University of Western Australia Law School.

Causation is one of the basic pillars of the law. Yet its nature, operation and relationship to other foundational concepts remains uncertain and contested, across virtually every field of civil and criminal law. This conference brings together a remarkable group of expert contributors to UWA Law Reviews’ 2022 special issue on causation, to debate, elucidate and resolve some of the law’s most pressing, and persistent, causal challenges. Speakers will bring their authoritative insights to bear upon the spectrum of private, commercial and criminal law doctrines in which causation plays a leading role, arising at common law, in equity and under statute.

The conference schedule including the speakers is available via UWA Law School website.

Full day in-person or remote attendance will attract 6 CPD points (Category 4 substantive law) (WA practitioners only). Points can also be claimed for individual sessions.

This conference is run on a not-for-profit basis, all unspent registration funds being donated for the research activities of the University of Western Australia Law School.
