When did counter-terrorism policy and citizenship laws begin to overlap? How does international law inform Australia, China and the United States’ stake in the South China Sea dispute? Why are Australia’s imprisonment rates climbing and what can be done to curb them? And why are some politicians so determined to reform Australia’s immigration and racial discrimination laws?

Four very current issues in Australia today will be discussed in ANU Law Explains, a four-part Q&A series featuring leading ANU Law experts and hosted by Damien Carrick from the Law Report on ABC Radio National.

Learn from International Law expert Professor Donald Rothwell, human rights lawyer Professor Simon Rice, citizenship expert Professor Kim Rubenstein, counter-terrorism researcher Dr Dominique Dalla-Pozza, criminal barrister Dr Anthony Hopkins and migration and refugee law researcher Khanh Hoang, and take the opportunity to ask your own questions.

ANU Law Explains is a National Law Week 2017 event which will examine these highly political issues with a legal perspective for a layperson audience. Through interviews with journalist Damien Carrick plus a Q&A session, our scholars will answer your questions and help you better understand how the law is being applied to key political policies.

Register now for the full day or just the sessions that are most important to you. Stay for a drink from 5pm to discuss the topics over a beverage and nibbles.

Lunch and light refreshments will also be provided.
