This is a joint event organised by the Gilbert + Tobin Centre of Public Law (UNSW) and AACL

Tue, 2013-12-10

This event will provide an outline of recent constitutional developments in three jurisdictions – the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States – 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.
