We were delighted to announce the third Public Law in the Classroom workshop. After the very positive reception for the first two workshops, we looked forward to welcoming back teachers of Australian public law in 2017.

The day was presented in three sessions, with plenty of time for discussion and sharing of practice in each. The first session examined the way in which public law theories and values shape our teaching. The second session showcased cutting edge teaching practices, techniques, and technologies, as well as research into public law teaching (see call for abstracts below). The final session was a panel discussion on the possibilities and challenges presented by the research-teaching nexus in public law.

The Program is available.

The workshop once again featured posters on new techniques for, and insights into, teaching public law. For the first time, we invited those who wish to share their teaching innovations and ideas to contribute an abstract for either a poster or a presentation during the second session, or both.

More information about the event and a Call for Abstracts for posters and session 2 presentations is available here.

Further specific information on the poster session including a link to posters from the 2016 and 2015 workshops is available here.

The abstracts for the poster sessions are available here.
