The Long Table - Julian Burnside

‘As we look up from the political abyss in these appalling times, Burnside is a glowing light on a distant hill.’ - Barry Jones


Julian Burnside, QC, specialises in commercial litigation, but is perhaps best known in the general public for his deep involvement and advocacy in human-rights work, in particular in relation to refugees. He is also a patron of the arts and a lover of English - as well as stickler for its uses and misuses.

Join us for a two-course Spring lunch as we ponder Burnside’s latest book, Watching Out, an examination of the workings of our legal system - how it operates in practise and how it does and doesn’t run true to its ultimate purpose.

Tickets: $75

Entry includes two course lunch, glass of wine or soft drink, tea or coffee and a copy of Watching Out (RRP $29.99)
