Causation is one of the basic pillars of the law. Yet its nature, operation and relationship to other foundational concepts remains uncertain and contested, across virtually every field of civil and criminal law. This conference brings together a remarkable group of expert contributors to UWA Law Reviews' 2022 special issue on causation, to debate, elucidate and resolve some of the law's most pressing, and persistent, causal challenges. Speakers will bring their authoritative insights to bear upon the spectrum of private, commercial and criminal law doctrines in which causation plays a leading role, arising at common law, in equity and under statute.
