Aristotle and the equity of statute law featured prominently in the recent WA HAL Chapter Robert French AC Oration.
The Hon Justice James Edelman, Justice of the High Court of Australia, delivered the Oration to a large crowd of HAL members and guests on 27 September 2018 in Court No. 1 at the Supreme Court of Western Australia.
His Honour’s Oration, titled “Aristotle and the Equity of Statute Law”, was followed by a reception for members and guests.
The National President of HAL, Mal Varitimos QC, said in his address that it was an honour and fitting to have the Robert French AC Oration delivered by Justice Edelman. Both Justice Edelman and Mr French AC were both recognised as outstanding jurists from Western Australia.
Mr Varitimos observed that Mr French AC was regarded by HAL members as a great Philhellene and it was a privilege to name the WA Chapter Oration after him.
Thanks were also extended in the evening to the generous sponsorship provided by Vertannes Georgiou Lawyers.
