ALTA 2011

I attended the Australian Law Teachers Association Conference (ALTA2011) in Brisbane from 3-6 July 2011.

You can access a copy of my paper here.

I am progressively uploading commentary on the sessions I attended at ALTA2011 via the above menu bar.  Recently added:

Impressions from the Keynote Speech by Chief Justice Robert French AO High Court of Australia.

Impressions of Helen Sungaila and Peter Boulot’s paper, ‘A Critical Analysis of the On-going Regulatory Offensive on the Australian Legal Profession: Challenges to Legal Best Practice Management’.

Thanks to @richards1000 on Twitter, tweets from ALTA2011 are now archived at http://bit.ly/rqLXGo in .csv format
