Religious Freedom in Australia – a new Terra Nullius?
Edited by Iain T. Benson, Michael Quinlan and A. Keith Thompson
The School of Law, Sydney is excited to announce the launch of its inaugural book from Shepherd St Press, an imprint of Connor Court Publishing and The School of Law, The University of Notre Dame Australia, Religious Freedom in Australia – a new Terra Nullius?
This book will be launched by Former Justice of the High Court Dyson Heydon AC. Justice Heydon was appointed to the New South Wales Bar in 1973, was appointed a Queen’s Counsel in 1987 and appointed to the High Court in 2003. Justice Heydon AC was appointed a Companion in the General Division of the Order of Australia in 2004.
The papers in this book flowed from a Religious Liberty Conference convened in February 2018. The papers reflect insights and concerns about religious freedom when the Ruddock Review was considering whether religious liberty in Australia needed greater protection. Since that time, the Australian Human Rights Commission has released a discussion paper of its own and the Commonwealth Attorney-General has released a draft Religious Discrimination Bill for discussion.
