Seminar on Tobacco Plain Packaging


13 July 2012

Australia's plain packaging legislation for tobacco products represents an innovative approach to this longstanding public health issue.

Four eminent legal and public health figures will reflect on this achievement and some of the remaining obstacles, and ask what lessons can be drawn from the plain packaging story for the development and introduction of innovative policy solutions to public health issues.

The Charles Perkins Centre is pleased to invite you to a seminar by the following leading academics:

Professor Andrew Mitchell (Melbourne Law School), Professor Gillian Triggs (Challis Professor of International Law at the University of Sydney), Mr Paul Grogan (Director of Advocacy at Cancer Council Australia), Professor Simon Chapman (Professor in Public Health at the University of Sydney).

This cross-disciplinary event is co-presented by the Charles Perkins Centre, Sydney Law School, the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and the Sydney Medical School.
