Queer History & the Law Seminar

Queer History & the Law Seminar

Queer History & the Law Seminar is marketed towards law students from Victorian Law schools. It joins professionals in the legal field with their expert knowledge of the LGBTQI+ community and the students who will get an opportunity to engage and network with them. The event itself is a panel compiled of industry professionals who have knowledge or have impacted the LGBTQI+ community. It is intended to allow students to gain insight on the action being taken for community rights. It also touches on past issues within the community so that participants will have an all round knowledge of the subject base.

Guest Speakers

  • Jared Heath, Partner at Corrs Chambers Westgarth

  • Anthony Bendall, Principal Policy Officer at Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation

  • Jamie Gardiner, Member at LGBTI Taskforce, Department of Premier & Cabinet, State Government of Victoria

This event is perfect for those doing Human Rights Law electives or social justice electives.

After the panel students who wish to do so will be invited to partake in light refreshments provided for by the Dictum Society and directly engage with professionals from the industry.
