    Wow, what an evening!

    On the night of 8 October 2012, we held a cocktail party with over 70 past and present members and friends of the Society celebrating our 30th anniversary.

    We enjoyed presentations from the Hon. Michael Kirby AC CMG, who inspired and challenged our thinking, a few words from me, and we were taken on a journey through the last 30 years with founding members, Philip Argy and Jim FitzSimons. MC for the night was our Vice President, Ruarri Fairweather.

    Mr Kirby spoke with admiration of the Indian High Court and its adoption of technology in reducing the reliance on paper through its operations and the lessons we can learn from a court which presides over the legal system serving more than a billion people. For more details of Mr Kirby‚Äôs comments and the night, please see the coverage in LawyersWeekly.

    Have a look at the photos from the night.

    The Society is proud to support AustLII by donating $1,000 from ticket sales.

    We thank those who attended for joining us, and look forward to the next 30 years with excitement.
