The Information that Democracy Needs

Whitlam Oration

The Whitlam Institute is delighted to announce that this year’s Oration is being delivered by one of Australia’s most eminent lawyers, Bret Walker SC.

Bret is not only highly respected for his fierce intellect, he is also known for pursuing projects of conviction. He is a past President of the NSW Bar Association and the Law Council of Australia and was appointed as Australia’s first Independent National Security Legislation Monitor. 

“Bret Walker is widely acknowledged as one of the finest legal minds in Australia. He is renowned as a skilful advocate and writer, not only in the law but also in hard and critically important issues of contemporary politics and governance.” – the Hon. John Faulkner, Whitlam Institute Chair
