scl_intro.jpgSelden 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:

Lecture three—23 July—Dr Andrew Stumer on Lord Eldon

Lecture four—17 September—Dr Dominic O’Sullivan QC on Lord Blackburn

Supreme Court of Queensland 2015 oration—29 September—The Right Honourable the Lord Judge on Magna Carta

Lecture five—15 October—The Hon Justice Peter Applegarth on Lord Atkin

Lecture six—19 November—The Hon Justice James Douglas on Lord Denning
