The December 2018 conference at Melbourne Law School will begin on Monday, December 10, 2018, and continue through Wednesday, December 12, 2018. There are certain to be activities before and after the conference itself, so if your schedule allows please plan to arrive a few days early and to stay for a few days after.

Your experience in Australia will allow you to learn and share cutting-edge information on global legal education and to meet experts and new friends expected from Australia, Canada, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Qatar, Russia, Switzerland, Turkey,  the United Kingdom, the United States, and other countries.
