Lord Atkin was one of the most influential judges of his or any generation. His landmark judgments still guide the laws of our nation and the rest of the common law world today.
James Richard (Dick) Atkin was born in Tank Street, Brisbane on 28 November 1867. Last November marked the 150th anniversary of his birth.
To commemorate this anniversary and Atkin’s lasting legacy to the common law, the Supreme Court Library launched a new exhibition, Lord Atkin: from Queensland to the House of Lords.
One of the major objectives of the Hellenic Australian Lawyers Association (HAL) is to provide continuing legal education and the exchange of legal information.
HAL is delighted to be hosting a lecture by the Honourable Justice Peter Applegarth, and tour, of the Lord Atkin Exhibition at the Supreme Court Library, Level 12, Queen Elizabeth II Courts of Law, 415 George Street, Brisbane, on 11 May 2018 from 5:30pm to 6:30pm.
Justice Applegarth will refer to a modern day link between Lord Atkin and Greece.
The event will be followed by light refreshments.
There is no charge for this event. There are limited spaces available so early bookings are encouraged.
RSVP via Trybooking by 27 April 2018, if not booked out earlier.
