Scales of Justice

The ANU Law School has a long tradition of excellence in administrative law scholarship and of engagement with government and the private profession in public law. Its reputation was established by successive generations of administrative law scholars who have taught generations of judges, government lawyers and decision-makers, private practitioners and academics about legal and political accountability of government decision-making.

The Public Law Weekend, hosted by the ANU Centre for International and Public Law, is one of Australia’s pre-eminent public law conferences. This year’s program will focus primarily on administrative law with a special emphasis on celebrating administrative law at the ANU, particularly the stellar careers of Emeritus Professors Robin Creyke AO and John McMillan AO.

Confirmed speakers include: the Hon Justice Stephen Gageler, the Hon Justice John Basten, the Hon Justice John Griffiths, the Hon Justice Rachel Pepper, the Hon Justice Janine Pritchard, Gabrielle Appleby, Mark Aronson, Judith Bannister, Will Bateman, Janina Boughey, Lisa Burton Crawford, Robin Creyke, Matthew Groves, Graeme Hill, Leighton McDonald, John McMillan, Dennis Pearce, Kim Rubenstein, Kristina Stern SC, Daniel Stewart and Greg Weeks.

CPD points are available for this conference.
