Edition 19: Editorial

Written by Felicity Gerry KC



Welcome to the NOVEMBER 2020 issue of ANZSIL Perspective.

My editorial team and I are delighted to deliver the last ANZSIL Perspective for 2020 which maintains the consistently high level of contributions which we have shared with members since ANZSIL Perspective inception, and now freely available on the ANZSIL website for the international community.

This month we are very pleased to have four excellent contributions from a range of authors on some interesting and sometimes controversial topics. We look forward to our next edition in February 2021 and to the forthcoming year, whether by monthly or fast turnaround contributions.

As we move towards our revised conference arrangements, I hope that members and the wider international community will contribute to ANZSIL Perspective which is growing and, we hope, contributing to our regional representation in international law practice and academia. This month I am delighted that, once again, we have articles from a diverse range of authors giving voice to a diverse range of international law issues, including serious issues arising from the Brereton Report.

As you know, in my role as editor I am keen to encourage contributions from across our membership and the wider international legal community, especially those with emerging careers. I am also pleased that our contributions over the last year have included book reviews and discussion and responses to earlier publications so that ANZSIL Perspective has continued to contribute to debate and education. I look forward to the submissions for 2021.

Felicity Gerry QC (Editor)

The deadline for the next ANZSIL Perspective is 12 FEBRUARY 2021. The current call for Perspectives and submission details and guidelines are on the ANZSIL Perspective webpage.
