2016 Lecture Series

Selden Society Lectures 2016

In 2016, the Supreme Court Library is also honoured to welcome the Deputy Chief Justice, Republic of South Africa, the Hon Dikgang Moseneke, to present this year’s Supreme Court Oration.

In presenting these lectures, we are very grateful again this year for the generous participation of very fine speakers—and for the ongoing support of the Supreme Court of Queensland.
