UNSW Law Journal 40(2) Launch – The Individual Judge

Event date: 
29 May 2017
6:30pm to 8:30pm
Clayton Utz, Level 15, 1 Bligh Street, Sydney 2000

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.
