Judicial impartiality seminar stimulates important discussions
On Tuesday 2 March 2020 the Australian Law Reform Commission (ALRC) co-hosted a panel seminar with the Australian Academy of Law at the Federal Court of Australia in Sydney. The expert panel explored issues of public confidence, apprehended bias, and the modern federal judiciary. The ‘sold out’ event provided a conducive format for discussion relevant to the ALRC’s current review of judicial impartiality. Insightful presentations were complemented by questions from an international online and in-person viewing audience facilitating thoughtful considerations and lively conversation.
