We invite you to register for a major conference on constitutional law to be held in a hybrid format on Friday 10th February 2023, organised by the Gilbert + Tobin Centre of Public Law at the Faculty of Law and Justice, UNSW, with the support of the Australian Association of Constitutional Law and Federation Press.

The hybrid conference will feature discussions of important developments in the High Court, Federal Court and state courts and provide an overview of the key public law debates in 2022. The conference will include papers on the separation of powers, the implied freedom of political communication, privacy, protective detention, discrimination law, inconsistency between state and federal legislation, and government powers with respect to citizenship, alienage and deportation. The event will be addressed and attended by leading judges, academics, barristers and government lawyers.

The conference will be held in hybrid format, with attendees able to attend in person (100pax capacity; first come, first served) or online via Zoom. The in-person element of the conference will be held at the offices of Gilbert + Tobin in Barangaroo, Sydney. There will be multiple opportunities for informal interaction throughout the day, both in-person and online. A cocktail party will be hosted at Gilbert + Tobin in Sydney, and smaller cocktail events in most other major cities for those attending remotely. Details will be forward to online attendees closer to the date.
