The 2021 Conference Organising Committee is sad to announce that, in light of the ongoing Delta outbreak in Sydney and associated uncertainties, it has taken the difficult decision to postpone this year’s conference to next year. We are optimistic and enthusiastic about welcoming you to UTS and Sydney in 2022. The conference theme will be the same so please do hold on to your abstracts and ideas. 2022 will be the 40th anniversary of the first annual conference so we look forward to some additional celebrations!

40th Annual Conference of the Australian and New Zealand Law and History Society

When: 3-4 December 2021

Where: University of Technology Sydney

What: Tenuous Histories and Provable Pasts: How Legal Historians Create Knowledge

CFP: Available here.

What about Covid-19? At present our expectation is that this will be a hybrid conference. We hope that by December of this year many of our Australian/New Zealand colleagues will be able to attend in person. We also hope to offer options for those who cannot attend. Things may change (particularly with the ‘in person’ part). We will be responsive to the changing circumstances and to health advice. And we will keep you all informed.

Accommodation and Registration: We will be providing information about accommodation and registration on this website well before the event.

Questions: Email Shaunnagh Dorsett (

Organising committee: Isabella Alexander, Katherine Biber, Alecia Simmonds, Diane Kirkby, Shaunnagh Dorsett
