Event description

Description

UNSW Law Book Forum is a series that showcases recently published monographs by members of the UNSW Law Faculty. The format of each event is an ‘author-meets-reader’ encounter in which the UNSW Law author briefly presents the themes of their book, and then responds to critical readings offered by 2-3 specially invited external readers of the manuscript. The intent of the series is both to celebrate the achievement of our UNSW Law colleagues in publishing their books but also to critically engage them and to generate discussion within and beyond the Faculty.

Please join us in this upcoming Book Forum where Gabriel Appleby, Associate Professor at UNSW Law, will be presenting her book “The Role of the Solicitor General: Negotiating Law, Politics and the Public Interest"

Charing the Book Forum is Andrew Lynch (UNSW Law) and Gabrielle will be responding to readers:
