Law School 90th Anniversary Events
To celebrate 90 years of the UWA Law School, we’re presenting a number of special events with law as their theme.
2017 John Toohey Oration
The John Toohey public lecture honours the career and contribution to public life of a very distinguished graduate of The University of Western Australia, Justice John Leslie Toohey who, after graduating in Arts and Law, went on to become one of the State's outstanding legal practitioners and subsequently one of the country's eminent jurists.
The Oration will be delivered by Greg McIntyre SC, who will address the articulation by the Honourable John Leslie Toohey AC QC, in the course of his legal and judicial career, of the fundamental rights and freedoms which form part of the universal norms of a democratic society and are protected by the Rule of Law.
