LSS Sir Anthony Mason Lecture: Proportionality and its use in Australian Constitutional Law

The Sir Anthony Mason Honorary lecture was inaugurated in 1995, the year of Sir Anthony Mason's retirement as Chief Justice of the High Court of Australia. The lecture serves to celebrate Sir Anthony Mason's outstanding contribution to the legal profession and the common law of Australia, as well as offering the opportunity for students of the Law School to meet and hear those who have helped to shape the law as we study it. It provides a substantial contribution to legal debate within the Melbourne Law School, as well as inspiration and insight to students.

In keeping with the tradition to speak on pertinent and sometimes controversial issues within the legal and social community, this year the Melbourne University Law Students' Society (LSS) are delighted to announce that the Hon. Sir Anthony Mason himself will present the lecture on 'Proportionality and its use in Australian Constitutional Law'.

This will be the third time that Sir Anthony has delivered the lecture, and ten years since he last presented.
