Michael Murray’s on-going commentary on issues in corporate and personal insolvency law and related policy and law reform, in Australia and internationally. Given the scope of insolvency, this extends to business, consumer and professional conduct, and ethics, governance and regulation, criminal, tax, environmental and administrative law, and the courts and government.


How to be ethical in the practice of the law: can it be taught?

This open debate, organised by the Australian Academy of Law, is the final in a series of three ethics-themed debates held in Sydney this year. Previous debates have attracted a wide audience of around 200 people.

It is being held from 5:30–7pm on Monday 20 November 2017, at the Federal Court of Australia in Sydney. Further details of the debate and registration details are on the Academy website. Registration is free. Once you register, you will be invited to suggest a question to be posed to the panel.
