The fourth annual Public Law in the Classroom workshop for teachers of Australian public law will be held in Sydney on Thursday 22 February 2018. The workshop has become a unique forum in which teachers of Australian public law can share ideas and inspire one another. It is co-hosted by the Gilbert + Tobin Centre of Public Law, UNSW and the Public Law and Policy Research Unit, University of Adelaide. Registration is free and includes morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.

The day will be presented in three sessions, with plenty of time for discussion and sharing of practice in each. The first session will examine the importance and challenges of Indigenous issues, perspectives and law in public law classrooms. The second session will focus on using technology to teach public law to large cohorts.

The final session will be a discussion of the intersection between teaching and the practice of public law. The workshop will also again feature a poster session on new techniques for, and insights into, teaching public law and the closing date for abstracts has been extended until 30 November 2017.

Program now available here.

Public Law in the Classroom 2018 takes place immediately before another important event on the public law calendar – the 2018 Constitutional Law Conference and Dinner, hosted by the Gilbert + Tobin Centre of Public Law at the Art Gallery of New South Wales and Parliament House on Friday 23 February 2018.
