Highly successful 2015 conference

From Libby Connors.

Thanks to Wilf Prest, Matthew Stubbs and the committee at University of Adelaide for another successful conference. We enjoyed a fine series of keynote addresses by international scholars.

The society also offers special thanks to our outgoing president Shaunnagh Dorsett. Shaunnagh led the society through some really important transitions – revitalising our website, introducing an annual prize in legal history, participating in the first Australian exchange panel with the American Society for Legal History, initiating constitutional revision and most importantly overseeing our steps towards becoming an incorporated association. Thank you Shaunnagh for all the hard work of the past three years.

We also farewelled two other office bearers at this year’s AGM. Jason Taliadoros from Deakin and Stefan Petrow from University of Tasmania stepped aside as secretary and Australian treasurer respectively. Together they oversaw the introduction of electronic membership joining and renewals. We are immensely grateful for their attention to these processes for us.

So yes the society now has a new committee – a special welcome to Pamela O’Neill, Sue Milne and Eugene Schofield-Georgeson, our new secretary, Australian treasurer and vice-president respectively. We will all be working towards another successful year for the society in its 35th year of conferring. 2015

About anzlhswebsite

The Australian and New Zealand Law and History Society was formed in 1993. It is an interdisciplinary group of scholars who share an interest in the connections between law and history. The society grew out of the annual Law in History Conferences, which have been running since 1982. Members of the society include historians, lawyers, academics and others interested in the area. Most of the members live in Australia or New Zealand, but their areas of interest are not confined to the law in those places.
