Presenter: Professor Ben McFarlane (University College London)
Venue: Bar Association of Queensland,
Ground Floor, Inns of Court,
107 North Quay
Brisbane
Time: Mon, 11 July : 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Contact: Megan Niebling - CPD Team, ph: 3238 5109 , email: CPD@qldbar.asn.au
More Information: "There is a tension in private law between what might be seen as a property-based approach, which focusses on identifying and vindicating rights, and a loss-based approach, which instead focusses on identifying and compensating losses. A number of recent decisions, for example, are more consistent with the loss-based approach, which in some cases is used to extend liability (by allowing recovery of losses even in the absence of a recognised right), and in others is used to limit liability (by refusing to vindicate a right in a case where no loss has been suffered). In some of those decisions, judges have referred to the need to adopt a "realistic" or "economic" approach, focussing on overall gains or losses, as opposed to a "narrow" or "legalistic" view which looks instead to the parties' initial rights. I will consider the effects of such developments, and the possible ways of reconciling them with more traditional private law rules."

THURSDAY 22 SEPTEMBER 2016
Selden Society 2016 Lecture Series
Topic: Lecture four — Mabo v State of Queensland (No 2)
Presenter: The Hon Margaret White AO
Venue: The Banco Court,
Queen Elizabeth II Courts of Law
Level 3, 415 George Street, Brisbane
Time: Thu, 22 September : 5:15 pm - 7:00 pm
Contact: Supreme Court Library Queensland, email: events@sclqld.org.au
More Information: Mabo v Queensland (No. 2) is one of the most important judgments ever delivered by the High Court. It concerned an issue arising from events some 200 years earlier, when the Australian continent was first colonised. The issue was whether the effect of colonisation, under the common law, was to vest full ownership of all Australian land in the Crown—or whether the common law recognised land titles rising under pre-existing Indigenous laws and customs.

The Hon Margaret White AO acted as junior counsel for the Queensland Government for the ten years of litigation. She brings a unique and valuable perspective to this landmark constitutional case.

For More Information
Further Details: RSVP by 15th September 2016 to mailto:events@sclqld.org.au
