We are pleased to announce that the Australasian Christian Legal Convention 2016 (“ACLC 2016”) will be held on 29 September to 1 October 2016 at the Mercure Hotel in Brisbane. The theme of the Convention will be “Redeeming the law for the kingdom of God in Australia”. The Convention is open to lawyers, law students, persons involved in the administration of justice and those with a concern for justice in our community.

The international key note speaker for the Convention is Mike Schutt from the USA, the director of the Christian Legal Society (CLS) Law School Ministries and of the Institute for Christian Legal Studies, a cooperative ministry of the CLS and Trinity Law School, where he is a Visiting Professor. He previously practised law with US firm Thompson & Knight.

Mr Schutt currently writes, speaks, and teaches on the relationship of lawyers, faith, and culture. He is the author of Redeeming Law: Christian Calling and the Legal Profession (InterVarsity Press 2007), a vocational exhortation for law students and lawyers.

In addition to Mr Schutt, we are privileged to have Queensland Supreme Court Justice Debra Mullins, South Australian Supreme Court Justice David Bleby and Federal Court Judge John Gilmour as the Convention’s Patrons, alongside a number of prestigious speakers. More information on our exciting line-up of speakers can be found at the link below.
