To coincide with Supreme Court Library Queensland’s latest exhibition, The many hats of Sir Samuel Griffith, and to commemorate 100 years since Griffith’s death, the 2021 Selden Society lecture series is devoted to the great lawmaker, constitutionalist and statesman.

Sir Samuel Griffith was undoubtedly the instigator of some of the greatest law reform in Queensland. In this first lecture of 2021, Justice David Jackson will attempt to capture the most significant pieces of law reform for which Griffith was singularly responsible for more than a quarter of a century.

The range of subjects includes both civil and criminal law, substantive law and procedural law with a view to identifying what was innovative and, at times, audacious.

Refreshments will be served in the Portrait Gallery after the lecture.
