The UQ Pro Bono Centre is proud to welcome our patron, The Honourable Justice Peter Applegarth AM, to present to students, alumni and community of the T.C. Beirne School of Law.

Justice Applegarth graduated from the Universities of Queensland and Oxford and was at the Bar from 1986 until 2008 when he became a Judge of the Supreme Court. Until recently he chaired the Queensland Law Reform Commission, and is currently a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Law.

Justice Applegarth presides over complex trials. He is Principal Judge of the Supreme Court’s Commercial List. He also teaches Media Law and is patron of the UQ Pro Bono Centre.

In 2020 Justice Applegarth became a Member of the Order of Australia for significant service to law, the judiciary and social justice.

In this session, Justice Applegarth will locate the importance of issue framing in crafting oral and written submissions.

We are so fortunate to welcome Justice Applegarth to our law school for this exciting event on the evening of Tuesday, 18 April. We hope you'll join us.
