Event description

Description

The ANU Law School has a long tradition of excellence in administrative law scholarship and of engagement with government and the private profession in public law. Its reputation was established by successive generations of administrative law scholars who have taught generations of judges, government lawyers and decision-makers, private practitioners and academics about legal and political accountability of government decision-making.

The early giants of public law at the ANU included the late Professor Jack Richardson AO, who became the first Commonwealth Ombudsman in 1977, and Emeritus Professor Dennis Pearce AO, who was appointed to the same role in 1988 and continues to be one of Australia’s foremost authorities on public law. ANU’s strength in administrative law continues with Kim Rubenstein, Leighton McDonald, Greg Weeks, Daniel Stewart and Will Bateman, all of whom present papers at the Public Law Weekend in 2018.

In between these generations of scholars were Emeritus Professors Robin Creyke AO and John McMillan AO, who have each left an indelible impression on the face of administrative law in Australia. In addition to their many academic achievements and contributions, Robin and John have left a large footprint in public administration in Australia.

Robin has been a member of the Administrative Appeals Tribunal, Integrity Advisor at the Australian Taxation Office, Commissioner of the ACT Independent Competition and Regulatory Commission and member of the Administrative Review Council.

Continuing an ANU tradition, John was appointed Commonwealth Ombudsman in 2003. He has since performed the roles of Australian Information Commissioner, Integrity Commissioner (Acting) for the Australian Commission for Law Enforcement Integrity and Acting NSW Ombudsman. Like Robin, he served on the Administrative Review Council.

The reputation of the ANU in administrative law, and the success of the Centre for International and Public Law and the Public Law Weekend, are in large measure due to the work, achievements, contributions and standing of these fine scholars. The Centre for International and Public Law recognises and celebrates their stellar careers.

The Centre for International and Public Law thanks its major sponsor, the Australian Government Solicitor.

The Centre is also grateful for the support provided by the Australian Institute of Administrative Law.
