The Australian Academy of Law Queensland 2020 lecture supported by the Selden Society (Australia) presents

 Celebrating Samuel Griffith

A famous Queenslander, Sir Samuel Walker Griffith GCMG QC was the first Chief Justice of Australia, holding that office from 1903 to 1919. His remarkable life ended in Brisbane 100 years ago on 9 August 1920. It is appropriate that the Queensland annual event of the Academy for 2020 celebrates his achievements. A distinguished panel will discuss interesting and important aspects of Griffith’s life.
