Judge in Residence

The Judge in Residence initiative has been running since 2012 at Melbourne Law School, and gives law students and academics the opportunity to engage with some of Australia's most influential judicial leaders through a series of workshops, classes and lectures.

The initiative encourages judges and academics with shared interests in particular areas of law to learn from one another, as well as allow students to obtain insights into the working of the courts and the role of Australian judges.<
