The leadership of Australia’s law schools has gathered at Flinders to discuss the future health and impact of Australian legal education.
The group, hosted by Dean of Flinders Law School, Professor Kim Economides, discussed accreditation, research quality, Indigenous and international engagement, and well-being.
The Council of Australian Law Deans (CALD) is an unincorporated association and the peak body of Australian law schools. It promotes legal education, legal research and cooperation between law schools and other stakeholder interests.
Professor Economides said Flinders Law School was immensely proud to be hosting the first CALD meeting of 2017, and to welcome the group back to SA.
This CALD meeting was also the first under its new Chair, Professor Bill MacNeil, Dean and Head of the School of Law & Justice at Southern Cross University.
The group was impressed by their Alere Function Centre venue, as well as the facilities and efficient support of the law school staff.
“What a privilege and a pleasure it was for me to chair the first CALD meeting of 2017 in the beautifully appointed board room of Flinders’ magnificent Alere Centre: the equipment was state-of-the-art, the support staff helpful and friendly, the food excellent and the views spectacular,” said Professor MacNeil.
“On behalf of CALD, I want to thank Flinders University, the Flinders Law School and, in particular, my good friend and colleague, Dean Kim Economides and his indefatigable administrative officer, Ms Maria Romeo, for hosting so superbly and organising with such aplomb this significant gathering of Australia’s law deans.”
