From the Supreme Court Library
Selden Society 2015 Lecture Series
The Selden Society–Australian Chapter and Supreme Court Library Queensland present the 2015 Lecture Series. The lectures are devoted to seven key English Judges, each drawn from a different era in the development of the modern law. The survey begins in the Tudor era, with Sir Edward Coke (1552-1634), and ends in the modern era, with Lord Bingham (1933-2010). Each may fairly be described as the most influential judicial figure of his era – with their writings and judgments continuing to provide a reliable font of principle for the guidance of modern courts and writers.
Save the date for these upcoming Selden Society 2015 lectures:
