PLPRU Co-Hosts 2020 Public Law in the Classroom Workshop
The Public Law and Policy Research Unit co-hosted the 2020 Public Law in the Classroom Workshop at the University of New South Wales on 20 February 2020. This inspiring, community-building event brings together public law teachers from around Australia to share their teaching techniques, philosophies and challenges. Now in its sixth year, the workshop has become a highlight of the national public law academic calendar.
The workshop included panels on ‘How Technology has Changed Public Law’ and ‘Increasing Student Awareness of Public Lawyering’. A special initiative introduced this year was a special panel for early career researchers and sessional teachers to present their approaches to ‘Contextualising Public Law for Students’. One of the Law School’s valued sessional teachers, Alexander Chan, made an excellent contribution to this panel.
The workshop was co-organised with the Gilbert + Tobin Centre of Public Law at the University of New South Wales and the Castan Centre for Human Rights Law at Monash University, continuing Adelaide Law School’s long history of collaboration with other leading law schools.
