Michael Kirby Lecture Series

Each year Southern Cross University and the School of Law and Justice hold the Michael Kirby Lecture, which features a keynote address by a prominent person in the areas of law, human rights, social policy or justice.

Details about the 2018 Lecture will be published when available. Bookings generally open a month or so prior to the Lecture date.

The lecture series is named after Australia's most iconic judge, The Hon Michael Kirby. When he retired from the High Court in 2009, Mr Kirby was Australia's longest serving judge. He has remained active in retirement and has served as the President of the Institute of Arbitrators and Mediators Australia, and Editor-in-Chief of The Laws of Australia. He is an Honorary Visiting Professor at 12 universities, including Southern Cross University.
