The Annual Lecture is part of an ongoing effort by the Melbourne University Law Review to increase engagement between itself and the legal community. In the past, we have had The Honourable Justice John Middleton speak on ‘Statutory Interpretation — Mostly Common Sense?’ and The Honourable Justice Stephen McLeish on ‘Challenges to the Survival of the Common Law’.

This year, for our Annual lecture, we are honoured to have The Honourable Kenneth Hayne AC as our guest speaker. Mr Hayne will deliver a speech on government contracts and public law, focusing on the Commonwealth executive's non-statutory power to enter contracts.

This event is open to all and no RSVPs are necessary.

A reception will be held in the foyer of Melbourne Law School following the event.
