High Court Judge To Present Talk At USQ

Justice Patrick Keane, one of the present judges on the High Court of Australia, will present a talk at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ) on Wednesday, 306th April as part of the 2014 Shine Lawyers Public Lecture Series.

Justice KeaneJustice Keane will share his first-hand knowledge and experience during his presentation   Reflections of the Separation of Powers.

Justice Keane has previously served as Chief Justice of the Federal Court of Australia, the Solicitor-General for Queensland and as a Barrister of the Supreme Court of Queensland. He was appointed to the High Court of Australia in March last year.

Head of School (Law and Justice) Reid Mortensen said he was thrilled to have Justice Keane talk at USQ. “I’m very excited to have such an eminent and respected High Court judge come to Toowoomba,” he said. “I’ve heard Justice Keane talk many times before and he’s a very, very interesting speaker who’s punchy and witty.”

“He will discuss the separation of the Legislative, Executive and Judicial powers in Australia which, as a judge of the High Court, is a topic he has vast knowledge and experience in. The High Court is the final arbiter of how governmental powers are separated meaning there aren’t many people who can talk about the topic with such authority.”

Justice Keane’s presentation will be held at the Allison Dickson Lecture Theatre from 6pm to 7pm (April 30). Light refreshments will be served from 5.30pm.
