Sixth annual Michael Kirby Justice Oration, 2016

Last night, The Hon. Jeff Kennett AC delivered an address on a number of insightful and lively subjects including generational unemployment, reforming tiers of Government, the importance of strong leadership and the recent statistics relating to the high suicide rate among Australians in 2015. 

Mr Kennett also explored how Australia, with its small population and three tiers of government, needs to make changes to ensure we are well positioned and prepared for the 22nd Century.

"Are we, as a community getting the maximum value from our Government?", The Hon. Jeff Kennett asked the lecture hall.

Established in 2010, the annual Michael Kirby Oration provides a platform for leaders within our community to share their experiences, knowledge and reflections on issues of justice.

Media opportunities include post event photographs and interviews with The Hon. Jeff Kennett and The Hon. Michael Kirby.
