Ever get the feeling that the law doesn’t always fulfil its goal of impartiality and equal treatment before the law?
Through reading the law queerly, this gathering of students and scholars will take a critical journey into law, theory and practice.
Designed over a three year period to complement and challenge the learning of Juris Doctor students throughout their program, but open to all members of the Melbourne Law School community, this reading group will explore queer, sexuality, desire, feminist and intersectional politics and theories in the law.
Participants are expected to read deeply and think creatively in advance of each session.

This event is for queers and allies. We want these events to be a safe space for all—whether queer and out of the closet, queer and in the closet, questioning, or an ally. To create this space, we ask that you don’t ask or make any assumptions about fellow attendees and where they fit on the rainbow.
This event takes place on stolen Wurundjeri land of the Kulin nation, and we pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging as well as any First Nations folk attending. Sovereignty was never ceded. As the queer directors, we acknowledge that queer First Nations folk experience disproportionate rates of trans- and/or homophobia and marginalisation. We strive to challenge the intersections of racism and trans- and/or homophobia that cause this discrimination.
