On Thursday, 21 October 2021, the School of Law will host the Annual Goldring Lecture, to honour the late Jack Goldring, University of Wollongong's founding Dean of Law; and to provide financial support for a high achieving LLB student who demonstrates a commitment to social justice.

The School of Law is pleased to share that this year’s Goldring Lecture will be delivered by Her Excellency the Honourable Margaret Beazley AC QC, Governor of New South Wales.

Prior to her appointment as Governor, Her Excellency had a long and eminent law career spanning 43 years, including appointment as the first woman to sit exclusively in the Federal Court of Australia and the first woman appointed to the NSW Court of Appeal and subsequently as its President.

In her role as Governor, she brings a deep commitment to education, youth leadership, human rights and social justice. Her Excellency was also made a Companion of the Order of Australia in 2020 for "eminent service to the people of New South Wales, particularly through leadership roles in the judiciary, and as a mentor of young women lawyers".
