ALTA holds its Annual Conference in July of each year with the event being rotated across different law schools. The Conference provides a supportive environment for academics to present papers on research areas of interest and also the opportunity to develop friendships and connect with academic colleagues within the Australasian region.
The conference theme is drawn from Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice, an iconic play that speaks to our times. They may not be ‘the best and worst of times’ but, we all live with great uncertainty, and in parts of the world, seemingly immutable enmities. We hope that the famous trial scene especially will provide ample material for stimulating discussion around a variety of themes. The plenary speakers and various supporting activities will explore the conference theme in various ways and thus provide a stimulating – and theatrical – backdrop for the conference proceedings and the discussions.
