Event description

Description

Deakin Law School's Centre on the Legal Profession is proud to present you with the amazing opportunity to hear former Justice of the High Court, the Honourable Michael Kirby AC CMG on "The Treatment of Asylum Seekers and Refugees".

His Honour will examine the emerging body of High Court decisions which suggest that a distinction must be drawn, for constitutional reasons, between "detention" on the order of the executive, and punishment pursuant to "sentence" imposed by the judicial branch. When does detention turn into punishment so that it can only be imposed by a judge? Have conditions in Nauru or Manus deteriorated to the extent that continued detention will require a judicial order? How does one draw the distinction between mandatory immigration detention and punishment in practice?

Don't miss out on this rare opportunity to hear a powerful speaker.
