The proliferation of intergovernmental agreements raises questions about their effect on Commonwealth legislative and executive powers, and the position of the states in the Federation.

This is a Sir Anthony Mason Honorary Lecture with the Honourable Justice Robert French.

The Sir Anthony Mason Honorary Lecture is a calendar highlight for the University's Law Student Society. It was inaugurated in 1995, the year of Sir Anthony Mason's retirement as Chief Justice of the High Court of Australia.

The lecture serves to celebrate Sir Anthony Mason's outstanding contribution to the legal profession and the common law of Australia, as well as offering the opportunity for Law School students to meet and hear from those who have helped to shape the law as we study it. It provides a substantial contribution to legal debate within the Law School, as well as inspiration and insight to many students.

The lecture discusses a pertinent and sometimes controversial issue within the legal and social community. As a result, it cultivates debate and is expected to attract a large and enthusiastic audience.
