Welcome to JATL’s first formal lecture and the launch of our annual academic journal, ‘Pandora’s Box’.

Date: Thursday 24 October 2019
Time: 6pm - 9pm
Venue: Banco Court, Supreme Court of Queensland
Dress: Business Attire
Speaker: Ms Catherine Chiang
Secretary of Asian Australian Lawyers Association Queensland Branch and barrister at Wilberforce Chambers


The aim of Pandora’s Box is to open up academic discussion of legal, social and political issues to a broader audience. This is achieved by featuring interviews, articles and book reviews from distinguished judges, academics, and practitioners. The theme for this year’s journal is ‘Identity in the Law.’ This edition will explore a range of issues including the gendered view of family violence legislation and rape law, the same sex marriage plebiscite, and the female experience in law.

The lecture will reflect this theme and discuss the importance of diversity in the law and the legal profession.


This event is a collaboration between the Justice and the Law Society and the Asian Australian Lawyers Association
