The TC Beirne School of Law at The University of Queensland is proud to host a private law conference on the theme "Private and Public Law - Intersections in Law and Method".  The conference will be held at the Marriott Hotel, 515 Queen Street, Brisbane on Thursday 21 and Friday 22 July, 2011, with the conference dinner taking place on Thursday, 21 July.

The conference will provide a forum for exploring some of the meeting points of private and public law and the increasingly common and often complex intersection between statutory and common law methods for implementing public and private ends.

Contributions are invited on any topic of private law theory, doctrine or method within the broad conference theme.  Example topics might include:

  • statutory recognition of privacy rights
  • trusts regulation
  • policy in private law
  • liability of public body
  • the impact of human rights in private law
  • statutory (partial) codifications of private law.

Please refer to the Expressions of Interest page for information on contributing a paper.
