Meet the Fellows 

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.   Membership is by invitation by the Board of Directors following nomination by and existing Fellow and consideration by the Membership Committee.  Fellows are invited 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.  The AAL's 2021 annual report has now been published and is to be found here.
