Launched in 2009, Current Legal Issues is a high profile series of seminars featuring leading national and international legal scholars, practitioners and members of the judiciary.
The series is a collaboration between The University of Queensland’s TC Beirne School of Law, the Bar Association of Queensland, the Queensland University of Technology Faculty of Law and the Supreme Court of Queensland Library. It seeks to bring together leading scholars, practitioners and members of the Judiciary in Queensland and from abroad, with a view to:
- providing a forum for the critical analysis and discussion of current legal issues
- bringing to bear upon those issues the different perspectives offered by leading academics, legal professionals and the Judiciary
- forging stronger links between academic and practising lawyers in Queensland.
Each seminar will comprise a Chair, Speaker, and Commentator. The Chair will introduce the Speaker and Commentator. A paper will then be presented by a leading practitioner or academic lawyer, and will be subject to a brief, expert commentary. There will then be an opportunity for members of the floor to ask questions and engage in further discussion. The paper and a short profile of each participant will be available in advance on this website to assist in facilitating full discussion.
Registration for these seminars is essential as numbers are restricted. To register, please email: email@example.com. Members of the Queensland bar Association should please note that they are required to log in. For further information regarding registration, please contact the CPD team at the Bar Association.
