The Hon Justice James Edelman, High Court of Australia


Law School campus

Curtin Law School invites you to our final Eminent Speaker Series event for 2019. The Honourable Justice James Edelman, High Court of Australia will be speaking on the importance of statutory interpretation.

One hundred years ago in October Sir Samuel Griffith retired from his commission as the first Chief Justice of the High Court of Australia. In his 16 years as Chief Justice, there was one legal theme which he repeatedly pronounced. It was his approach to statutory interpretation. A century later, that approach is under threat in Australia and elsewhere. This presentation assesses the approach of Sir Samuel in statutory interpretation and his explanation of the meaning of meaning.
