You are invited to attend an evening panel discussion on what lies ahead for the law reform process in Myanmar. This event is co-hosted by the Gilbert + Tobin Centre of Public Law and the Australian-Myanmar Constitutional Democracy Project. It builds on legal education and constitutional law initiatives already established by several UNSW Law School faculty members who engage with Myanmar.
The speakers are all contributors to a recently published book ‘Law, Society and Transition in Myanmar’ (Hart Publishing, 2014), the first book to explore the dynamics of Myanmar’s legal reform process in their social, historical and political context.
The panel will be chaired by the book’s co-editor, Professor Tim Lindsey of the University of Melbourne, and will include presentations by the other co-editor, Dr Melissa Crouch of UNSW; and contributors Associate Professor Sean Turnell of the Economics Faculty at Macquarie University, Dr Catherine Renshaw of the Law Faculty at UWS, and Melinda Tun of Baker & McKenzie, Sydney. They will address contemporary issues in constitutional reform, economic reform, corporate law reform and Myanmar’s role in regional networks. Professor David Dixon, Dean of UNSW Law, will launch the book after the panel discussion. A drinks reception will follow.
The event is free but registration is essential. Registration can be completed online here.
