The Western Australian Bar Association is delighted to be hosting this significant Colloquium and Dinner to honour the Hon. Robert French AC, Chief Justice of Australia.
His Honour has made an outstanding contribution to Australian society through his much celebrated career, both as a lawyer and as a Judge. He has served as a judge for 30 years, firstly of the Federal Court and latterly as Chief Justice of the High Court of Australia. In addition, he served as President of the National Native Title Tribunal.
This Colloquium, which will be held ahead of His Honour’s retirement as Chief Justice early in 2017, will bring together distinguished speakers who will trace his Honour’s influence in certain areas of the law, as well as key areas of the law developed by the "French" High Court.
All members of the judiciary and the national legal profession are warmly invited to join the WA Bar at this fitting tribute to a towering legal figure.
I look forward to welcoming you on 24 November 2016.
