The Adelaide Law School is delighted to invite you to a symposium on Same-Sex Marriage and LGBTIQ Rights in Comparative Perspective, organised by its postgraduate class in Advanced Comparative Law. The symposium adds to the current debate in Australia on how the new same-sex marriage legislation operates and sheds light on the protection of the rights of people belonging to the LGBTIQ community. Beyond discussing Australia, speakers will consider the protection of LGBTIQ rights, including the right to marry, in other jurisdictions. These foreign jurisdictions will put Australian law in a global perspective and may provide insights, guidance and examples for Australia.
Confirmed keynote speakers: Robert Simms, former federal Senator and Greens portfolio holder for LGBT Matters and Marriage Equality, and Caitlyn Georgeson, winner of the SBS Student and Rising Star of the Year Award, 2017 Australian LGBTI Awards, and final year law student.
Further presenters will be invited keynote speakers and postgraduate law students from around the world. More details on speakers and program will be provided in due course.
This event is supported by a Diversity and Inclusion Grant from the Faculty of the Professions at The University of Adelaide.
