Coordinated by The University of Queensland Law Society (UQLS), the annual Naida Haxton Lecture is one of the main events on the Law Society’s calendar and provides an exciting opportunity to explore and discuss legal advocacy and Queensland’s legal history with a prominent member of the judiciary.

This year's guest speaker is the Honourable Chief Justice Helen Bowskill, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Queensland.

This Lecture has been held annually since 2018, and is named in honour of Ms Naida Haxton, an alumnus of the UQ School of Law, who was the first woman to practise as a barrister in Queensland.
