Freedom 4 Faith
Emmanuel College, UQ

On behalf of the TC Beirne School of Law, Freedom 4 Faith and Emmanuel College, you are invited to the 2014 Freedom of Religion Conference, entitled Freedom of speech, conscience and association in a religiously tolerant society.

Religious freedom is widely recognised as a fundamental right protected by international human rights documents. Despite this, academics, legal experts and policy makers continue to debate the legitimate scope of this right and related rights. The purpose of this conference is to develop and articulate the case for freedom of religion, speech, conscience and association, and to explore what may be regarded as lawful limitations of these freedoms, in a multicultural society.

Date: 31 October 2014
Time: 8:30am - 5:30pm
Venue: Emmanuel College (within The University of Queensland)
Sir William MacGregor Drive, St Lucia QLD

The event will feature papers presented by leading experts in this field, including a keynote address by the Commonwealth Attorney-General, Senator Hon George Brandis QC, and papers presented by the Hon Justice Debra Mullins of the Queensland Supreme Court, Neville Rochow QC, Associate Professor Carlos Bernal-Pulido, Dr Joel Harrison, Dr John Shellard, Elizabeth Shalders and Rev Qaiser Julius.

This event is accredited for CPD purposes by the Queensland Bar Association (Code: FFFC1410). Participants will accrue 1 CPD point per hour of attendance in the non-allocated strand unless otherwise advised.
