ANU College of Law Research Seminar Series 2021

ANU College of Law Research Seminar Series

The ANU College of Law Research Seminar Series forms an important part of the College's Research Strategy.

The series aims to showcase the diverse legal research being undertaken by scholars at ANU College of Law. It provides a weekly opportunity for academic staff, College visitors and HDR candidates to engage in conversations with high-impact researchers and enrich our research community.  

Where possible, seminars in this series will be scheduled at lunchtime each Wednesday during teaching periods.

ANU Law welcomes members of the ANU Community, external stakeholders and the general public to attend any of the sessions in this series.
