The Final Courts Round-up 2011

Federal Court of Australia, Sydney, Court 18B
The Gilbert + Tobin Centre of Public Law and the Australian Association of Constitutional Law
5.30 pm
Tue, 2011-12-13

This event will provide an outline of recent constitutional developments in three jurisdictions –the United Kingdom, New Zealand and Canada – that are of key interest to Australian constitutional lawyers. Experts from each jurisdiction will report on two or three major constitutional cases argued or decided over the last year; changes in the composition and politics of each country’s highest court; and flag the state of debate over constitutional reform. Together, the panellists will also discuss the potential relevance of these comparative developments for current issues in Australian constitutional law.
