Event description

Description

Please join the AACL for an expert panel discussion of the recent decision of the UK Supreme Court in Miller [No 2] (R (Miller) v Prime Minister; Cherry v Advocate-General for Scotland [2019] UKSC 41; [2019] 3 WLR 589). With the Brexit deadline looming late last year, the UK Supreme Court broke new ground by concluding that it could review the Prime Minister's advice to the Queen to prorogue Parliament. Is it a "one off" or merely the first example?

Catch up on the decision, its significance, and possible implications for judicial review of prorogations and other exercises of non-statutory executive power in Australia.

Please arrive at 5:15 pm for a 5:30 pm start. Entrance is via the Parliamentary Annex on Alice Street. Photo ID is required for security.

Speakers:

Neil Laurie, Clerk of the Parliament

Sandy Thompson, Solicitor-General for Queensland

Tony Keyes, Queensland Parliamentary Counsel
