A BENEFIT GIG FOR JUSTICE CONNECT
Join Julian Morrow for a serious chuckle and a derisory snort with two of the most eminent human rights defenders in Australia, as he invites Prof Gillian Triggs and the man he calls ‘the proper Julian’ to share their insights into ridiculous laws both past and present.
In Australia and around the world, there remain many laws worthy of ridicule – some because they’re outdated and no longer apply to contemporary life, others because they’re unfair and discriminatory.
What are the laws that we should be challenging … and just how hard is it to change them?
Julian Burnside, AO QC and Prof Gillian Triggs, former President of the Australian Human Rights Commission, are the Patrons of Justice Connect.
Justice Connect provides free legal help for people facing disadvantage, and the community groups who support them. With the pro bono support of thousands of lawyers, we aim to create a fairer and more just world. Proceeds from this event will help vulnerable people to get the legal help they need.
Doors at 5:30pm for an 6:30pm start.
Giant Dwarf is a licensed venue. Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
