2020 Conference Cancelled

It is with great regret that we announce that the LSAANZ annual conference for 2020, due to be held at University of Technology Sydney (Australia) in December, has been cancelled. In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the increasingly uncertain future, it has become impossible to plan such an event, even if it is to be held at the end of the year. At the time of this communication, the Australian federal government has banned gatherings of more than 2 people, indefinitely. 

This decision has not been made lightly. We are aware of the importance of this event to the socio-legal community. We will look into alternative ways that we can meet and share our ideas and research using the resources available.

Trish Luker, President (March 2020)
