Event description

Description


The University of New South Wales Law Journal will launch Issue 40(2) at the Sydney offices of Clayton Utz on 29 May 2017, from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. The Issue features a thematic component on ‘The Individual Judge’, which seeks to explore the judiciary through the lens of individuality in any of its forms and to meaningfully contribute to the existing body of Australian judicial literature by considering judges as individuals rather than as part of the relatively anonymous third branch of government.

We are delighted to be welcoming The Hon Virginia Bell AC, Justice of the High Court of Australia, to deliver the keynote address. Prior to her appointment to the High Court in 2009, Justice Bell was first a judge of the Supreme Court of New South Wales, and then, the New South Wales Court of Appeal. Before her appointment to the bench, Justice Bell was a leading barrister, appointed Senior Counsel in 1997. Her Honour also served as president of the Australian Institute of Judicial Administration from 2006­–08.

The thematic component comprises eight articles from sixteen authors, and a foreword by The Hon Robert French AC, former Chief Justice of the High Court of Australia. The thematic articles cover a range of issues, including studies of particular judges; joint-judgment writing; and the role played by judges and magistrates in court administration. The general component of Issue 40(2) addresses a range of topical legal issues. These include: tort law defences; flexibility in the decision-making process of the Australian Takeovers Panel; historical access to legal representation in Victoria; informed consent and clinician experience as a material risk; effects-based tests for misuse of market power; and expert reports and expert evidence.

Please RSVP by 12pm on Friday, 26 May 2017.

Guests will receive name tags upon arrival, so please register each attendee's details individually.
