Join the local legal community at The Newcastle Law School’s 26th Annual Sir Ninian Stephen Lecture. The Sir Ninian Stephen Lecture was established in 1993 to mark the arrival of the first group of Bachelor of Laws students at the University of Newcastle. It is delivered by an eminent lawyer each academic year.

This year we welcome The Hon Wayne Martin AC, Chief Justice of Western Australia to deliver the lecture titled “Restorative Cities – The Role of the Justice System.”

The Hon Wayne Martin was admitted to legal practice in Western Australia in 1977.  In 1993 he was appointed Queen’s Counsel.  At different times he has served as Chairman of the Law Reform Commission of WA and the Administrative Review Council, and as President of the Law Society of WA and the WA Bar Association.  In 2006, he became the 13th Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Western Australia.  In 2012, the Chief Justice was recognised nationally when he was appointed a Companion in the General Division of the Order of Australia.  The Chief Justice currently holds many positions as Chairman or Patron, and is also the Lieutenant Governor of Western Australia.

We invite you to join us for this highlight event on the Newcastle Law School calendar.
