UNSW LawSoc: Court of Conscience 2016 Launch
20 October, 2016
Business Lounge, Level 6, UNSW Business School
UNSW Law Society
UNSW Law Society's Court of Conscience Issue 10 entitled ‘Giving Voice to Minority' will be launched on Thursday, 20 October! 2016 is a special year as we are celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Court of Conscience.
Join us for the launch of Court of Conscience, a multi-award winning equity publication, and pick up your very own copy hot off the press. The Issue will feature submissions that are academic, critical, and personal in nature from UNSW Law students as well as esteemed academics, and other eminent figures, reflecting on a diverse range of social justice topics through a legal framework.
This year’s Issue will be launched by the recently appointed Human Rights Commissioner, Edward Santow. As Human Rights Commissioner, Edward’s role is to promote human rights by operating at the intersection between government, business, and civil society. The focus of his work is to protect longstanding human rights recognised at common law and international law. From 2010–2016, Edward was the chief executive officer of the Public Interest Advocacy Centre, which is a leading Australian non-profit organisation that promotes human rights through strategic litigation, policy development, and education. Edward was previously a Senior Lecturer at UNSW Law School and a research director at the Gilbert + Tobin Centre of Public Law. He has worked at the Australian Law Reform Commission, in a Sydney law firm, and as associate to the Hon Justice Heydon AC QC of the High Court.
As always, we will be proudly supporting the UNSW Indigenous Pre-Law Program, so we are asking that you share the love around and swap a donation for your glossy new copy of Court of Conscience.
We look forward to seeing you at the launch! Drinks and nibblies will be provided. Please reserve your tickets for the launch via Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/court-of-conscience-2016-launch-tickets-27510093430
