In celebration of International Womens Day, the Hon. Justice Anthe Philippides, Queensland Court of Appeal, will deliver a presentation on “Themis – the female personification of justice”, at the Library of the Supreme Court of Queensland, on Tuesday 10 March.
Themis, the mythical Greek goddess of justice, is today the most recognisable symbol of justice. The ancient Greeks chose to personify justice in the female form.
The female personification of justice, with various modifications reflective of different periods in history, has been adopted through the ages and across the globe as an iconic representation of fairness and objectivity.
In this event, Justice Philippides will explore Themis as an enduring female personification of justice.
The event is free for members of the Hellenic Australian Lawyers Association and members of the Civil Liberties Council of Queensland, though places will need to be reserved through Trybooking.
There is a fee for non-members wishing to attend, and places will also need to be reserved through Trybooking:
- $5 for students

The annual fee for a HAL Ordinary Member is $50, or $20 for students, so become a member of HAL or renew your membership to attend the event free of charge.
