TJ Ryan Foundation Research Associate, Graeme Orr, delivered the 2017 MinterEllison Sir Harry Gibbs Lecture for The University of Queensland Law School on Monday, 16 October.
Professor Orr gave his lecture on "Who Can Be an MP? The Constitution, the High Court and the Disqualification Farce". He addressed such questions as: 'Should electors be able to elect any fellow elector? Or should there be constitutional barriers to potential MPs? Are such barriers workable, and what are their impacts on minor party candidates especially?'
The public lecture was recorded, and below you can find a link to the audio recording and video of presentation slides.
