Event description
The University of New South Wales Law Journal is pleased to announce the launch of Issue 44(2) on Tuesday 29 June 2021.

About this event

The University of New South Wales Law Journal is excited to announce the launch of Issue 44(2) on 29 June 2021. Issue 44(2) is a General Issue, which features 12 articles across a range of topics.

The theme of the launch, ‘Reconsidering Australian Intellectual Property Law’ has been inspired by the lead article of Issue 44(2), ‘Trade Mark Law’s Identity Crisis’ by Professor Michael Handler. This two-part article, the second of which is published in Issue 44(2), examines and critiques the developing application of the Federal Court’s recent move away from a strict approach to, and embrace of an expansive test of, substantial identity in Australian trade mark law.

The other articles in Issue 44(2) address a diverse set of legal questions, including the introduction of a common law tort of interference with privacy, mandatory helmet laws in New South Wales and the early release of superannuation to fund assisted reproductive technology. Advance Access versions of the articles can be found here.

We are delighted to welcome the Hon Justice Steven Rares of the Federal Court of Australia to deliver the keynote address. Justice Rares has been a member of the Federal Court since 2006 and is also an additional judge of the Supreme Court of the Australian Capital Territory and a judge of the Supreme Court of Norfolk Island. His Honour is currently the President of the Australasian Institute of Judicial Administration and has also served as Chairman of the Consultative Council of Australian Law Reporting.

The launch will take place at 6:00pm on Tuesday 29 June 2021 at the Sydney offices of our premier sponsor Herbert Smith Freehills.
