You are invited to attend the next Whitlam Oration, which will be delivered by one of Australia's leading constitutional lawyers, Bret Walker SC.
Bret Walker is not only highly respected for his fierce intellect, he is also known for pursuing projects of conviction. A Past President of the NSW Bar Association and the Law Council of Australia, he was Australia’s first Independent National Security Legislation Monitor.
“Bret Walker is widely acknowledged as one of the finest legal minds in Australia. He is renowned as a skilful advocate and writer, not only in the law but also in hard and critically important issues of contemporary politics and governance.” – the Hon. John Faulkner, Whitlam Institute Chair
The Whitlam Oration is the Institute’s flagship event, attracting an audience of leaders in Australian politics, business, civil society and policy, as well as the general public. Whitlam Orators address a theme that reflects the issues Gough Whitlam championed during his public life. Speaking on The Information that Democracy Needs, Bret Walker will offer an important insight to the Institute's policy work on the Future of Australian Democracy.
