Integrity and Innovation: Public Law in the 2020s

The ANU Public Law Conference is one of Australia’s pre-eminent public law conferences, attracting leading public law jurists, commentators, and practitioners. This year's conference will examine the most pressing contemporary developments in public law including federal administrative review, Robodebt and the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC). Themes of integrity and accountability run throughout the conference as we ask: What must change, and what is simply more of what has come before?

The Public Law Conference is fully catered and registration includes food trucks and refreshments at the conclusion of the Conference.
