Free speech and the law on campus. Do we need a charter of rights just for universities?

Delivered by the Hon. Robert Shenton French AC, Former Chief Justice of the High Court of Australia.

Recent public discussion about academic freedom and freedom of expression on university campuses in Australia and other countries has led to debate about the limits of freedom and control of speech in higher education.

Mr French's oration will canvas the content and history of expression, whether they are under threat, and whether special measures are necessary to protect freedom of speech and diversity of views in our higher learning institutions.

RSVP

Please RSVP by Monday 10 September 2018 to cduevents@cdu.edu.au.
