About Richard Cooper Memorial Lecture Series

Justice Richard Cooper
Justice Richard Cooper

The Richard Cooper Memorial Lecture is a joint initiative of the TC Beirne School of Law and the Federal Court of Australia. The series was established in 2005 in honour of the late Justice Richard Cooper of the Federal Court of Australia, who passed away suddenly on 14 March 2005. It is dedicated to the strong interests in maritime and native title law which he developed over the course of a long and distinguished legal career.
