Melbourne University Law Review Annual Lecture
The pace of work and productivity demands on courts and judges has increased. While the obligation to explain an exercise of judicial power through published reasons is a critical obligation, the challenge for courts and judges in contemporary Australia is how to reconcile that obligation with the need to give parties outcomes to their litigation in a timely way, and to ensure that explanations for the exercise of judicial power are accessible and understandable. In this lecture, the Hon Justice Debbie Mortimer of the Federal Court of Australia Justice Mortimer will offer a perspective on these challenges.
This event is open to all and no RSVPs are necessary. Drinks and canapés will be served in the foyer of the Law School after the event.
