Sydney Law School would like to announce that the Hon. John Dyson Heydon, QC (BA 1964, LLD 2007) has been appointed as Emeritus Professor.

The Emeritus title is in recognition of his outstanding and sustained contribution to the teaching and scholarship of the law school during and since his time as Dean.

"While normally emeritus titles are confined to retiring professors , the law school and university wanted to honour the exceptional circumstances of his service as a former professor and Dean appointed to the High Court of Australia and his continuing contribution to our activities," said the Dean, Professor Joellen Riley.
