CIPL 2015 Newsletter
in 2015 the Centre has had a rich and diverse program engaging with important issues of public policy across international and public law areas.
Issue 11: November 2015
One of the reasons we offer law reform and social justice activities such as those described below is to open up to students the possibilities for pursuing justice through law, and to use those opportunities to reflect on law’s potential and limitations.
Issue 10: July 2015
In the first half of 2015, we have been working on ways to encourage more collaboration and knowledge sharing between our student-run law reform and social justice projects and other organisations.
Issue 9: November 2014
In 2014, existing student projects expanded and new ones were started. LRSJ held film screenings and events with distinguished speakers. Our dedicated community of students and staff continue to grow law reform and social justice activities into 2015.
Issue 8: July 2014
In the first half of the year, established and new student projects did excellent work in researching and disseminating information on important issues of law reform and social justice. LRSJ also hosted a number of well-attended events with distinguished international and Australian speakers and screened two provocative documentaries.
Issue 7: November 2013
In 2013 we consolidated social justice activity within the ANU College of Law, as well as engaging speakers for public events on important issues of law reform and social justice.
Issue 6: August 2013
Law reform and social justice activity at the ANU College of Law can be traced back to a 1974 conference held by the ANU Law Faculty, 'Australian Lawyers and Social Change'. It is timely to recall this history, because Professor Michael Coper, whose vision and drive established a dedicated place for law reform and social justice at the ANU College of Law, stepped down as Dean at the end of 2012.
Issue 5: December 2012
Student projects have been expanded this semester. This includes one project sucessfully securing significant funding for their activities in 2012, and the introduction of a partnership with the ACT Environmental Defenders Office.
Issue 4: July 2012
This year we have continued and expanded our student internship program, and we report in this newsletter on the wide range of issues of law and social justice that interns have investigated and reported on, from health policy to self-defence, and from the Northern Territory to Iran.
