The Hon Michael Kirby Lecture


The Honourable Michael Kirby AC CMG visited Newcastle Law School on Tuesday 29 August 2017

The Honourable Michael Kirby AC CMG visited Newcastle Law School on 29 August 2017 to conduct a public lecture to our law students, staff and legal professionals on Gratitude, Resilience, and Self-criticism in Law. The lecture was well received as over 200 people attended (we also had to move the lecture to the Conservatorium as it was so popular with students!)

His Honour also spent some time conversing with LGBTIQ students over morning tea, and attended a staff lunch with the Vice-Chancellor to discuss the possibility of coming back to UoN in the near future. His Honour was also announced as an honourary ambassador of Newcastle City by Lord Mayor Nuatali Nelmes, and was gifted with the keys of the city.
