ACT Conference 2020


The ALA is excited to announce that it will be holding its ACT Conference 2020 in December! This will be the ALA’s first in-person event in the ACT this year, and we invite you to join your colleagues in Canberra for a full day of excellent education and networking opportunities.

The Conference will begin with a keynote address by Dr Asmi Wood, Professor at the ANU School of Law. Expert presenters will then discuss, analyse and share their perspectives on current ACT legal issues to provide information that will contribute to your professional development.

Food and drinks will be served afterwards at the post-Conference reception where you will be able to send the year off with fellow attendees.
