30 November 2009

Associate Professor Ian Lee of the University of Toronto will present this special seminar at the Law School's St James Campus next Tuesday, 8th December 2009.

Entitled Should Corporations be Permitted to Engage in Political Activities? it is concerned with evaluating the premise that underlies the U.S. federal electoral rules, the critics' position that these rules are too lax, and the calls for law reform in Australia, namely that the political activities of corporations should, in principle, be restricted.

The seminar will be chaired by Andrew Lumsden, a Partner at Corrs Chambers Westgarth and former Chief of Staff to Joe Hockey MP.

It is a joint initiative between the Ross Parsons Centre for Commercial, Corporate and Taxation Law and the Julius Stone Institute of Jurisprudence.
