The NSW Legal Services Commissioner Mr John McKenzie will visit Charles Sturt University (CSU) in Bathurst to deliver a special guest lecture on Friday 12 April to students in the CSU Centre for Law and Justice.

Director of the CSU Centre for Law and Justice Associate Professor Alison Gerard said, “We are delighted to have such a distinguished senior legal figure as Mr John McKenzie visit to address our law students and staff.

“Law students at CSU benefit immensely from hearing from leaders in the field.

“Our residential schools are alive with student, practitioner and academic engagement that fosters enriching opportunities for students from metropolitan, rural, remote and regional locations.

“Mr McKenzie will address students studying subjects Professional Legal Conduct, Writing and Communication for Legal Professionals, and Civil Procedure.

“His reflections on these topics, as well as his 34-years in criminal law, including working for the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody, will provide insight at a time of dynamic and often contentious public and political debate about the role of the legal profession.”

The guest lecture by NSW Legal Services Commissioner Mr John McKenzie will be in room 347, building 1411 (the Mansfield Building, adjacent to the library) at CSU in Bathurst, from 9.30am to 10.30am on Friday 12 April. Media are welcome to attend.
