Background about the event and the Honourable Michael Kirby AC CMG:Upon his retirement from the High Court of Australia in February 2009, Michael Kirby was Australia's longest-serving judicial officer. Throughout his stellar legal career he served on various national and international bodies, including as President of the International Commission of Jurists, UN Special Representative for Human Rights in Cambodia and the UNAIDS Reference Group on HIV and Human Rights.

More recently, he was appointed to the Advisory Council of Transparency International, the Chair of the UN Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights Violations in North Korea for 2013-2014, and the UNAIDS/OHCHR's panel on the overreach of criminal law. CSU's Bachelor of Laws is an internationally unique undergraduate law degree. As well as teaching the traditional law curriculum, our course incorporates Indigenous Australian content, embeds cultural competence and offers a range of specialised regional law topics.

We are delighted that in addition to the public lecture, our Bachelor of Laws students will have the opportunity to participate in specialised workshops facilitated by The Honourable Michael Kirby.

Through exposure to great legal thinkers and advocates, the Centre for Law and Justice aims to create change makers – skilled professionals who can work at the heart of regional communities, driving advocacy and improving access to legal representation across the country.
