The Federal Court and the Constitution – public lecture, 15 March, Canberra

A free public lecture on the Federal Court and the Constitution is being given at the ANU on this Thursday 15 March from 5.30 to 6.30pm.

The presenter is Professor James Stellios, with commentary by Professor William Gummow AC.

As the flyer explains, at its inception, the role of the Federal Court in the development of constitutional law was not entirely clear, nor was its relationship to other courts such as the High Court and the State Supreme Courts. Forty years on, the Federal Court has come to play a significant role, as the presenter will explain.

The talk is presented under the auspices of the Australian Academy of Law, co-sponsored by the Centre for International and Public Law, ANU College of Law, and the Australian Association of Constitutional Law.

Time and Date: 5:30pm – 6:30pm, Thursday 15 March 2018

Venue: The Common Room, University House, Australian National University, Canberra

Details are on the website of the Australian Academy of Law.
