About the Legal History Seminar Series
The Griffith Law School’s Legal History Seminar Series is a gesture to the interdisciplinary turns in legal history, and a contribution to the innovation at the heart of much contemporary legal history scholarship.
The LHSS aims to showcase legal history’s international and comparative flavour; it welcomes all who are interested in legal history’s present and future significance. Its aim is to participate in reinvigorating, and enlivening, an interest in the critically reflective directions of legal history, both in Queensland and elsewhere.
The Organising Committee hopes that the LHSS will draw, as an audience, practitioners, judges, students, academics and members of the public with an interest in new directions in legal history. We will welcome your attendance.
The LHSS’s program bridges a significant time – 2011 to 2012 marks the sesquicentennial of the Queensland Supreme Court (2011), the twentieth-year anniversary of the Griffith Law School (2012), and the thirtieth Annual Conference of the Australia and New Zealand Law and History Society (2012).
