Sir Anthony Mason Lecture 2019

Drawing on ideas of proportionality that have developed in Australian constitutional law and in 'rights-based' administrative law jurisdictions, Justice Kenny will explore the possibilities for proportionality reasoning in Australian public administrative law.

The lecture will be followed by refreshments from 7.45pm.

About the lecture

Proudly presented by the Melbourne University Law School Students’ Society, the Sir Anthony Mason lecture serves to celebrate Sir Anthony Mason's outstanding contribution to the legal profession and the common law of Australia.
