This links to all the individual Fellows of the Academy of Law 

Welcome to the Australian Academy of Law

The Australian Academy of Law comprises elected individuals of exceptional distinction in the discipline of law who are committed to the advancement of that discipline and to justice according to law in Australia.   Fellows are each elected by the Academy from the legal profession, from legal academia and from the judiciary.   The Academy thereby provides a bridge between each of those sections of the legal community.    The Academy's objects as listed in its Constitution are pursued through its public conferences and debates and its publications and newsletters, and the promotion of those objects through the individual activities of the Fellows.  


Fellow Spotlight: The Annual Spigelman Oration was given on 12 November 2020 by the Hon Alan Robertson SC under the auspices of the Public Law Section of the NSW Bar Association.   The title of the talk was 'Supervising the legal boundaries of executive powers'.  See this link.
