    The Hon Michael Kirby recently presented a lecture at the Australian Law Teachers' Association Conference in which he examined the strengths and failings of the law in Australia in meeting individual and community needs for legal services.

    Kirby suggested that the recent over-supply of law graduates is unlikely to cure the shortfall in services. He believes that legal academics have a special duty to critique their discipline and provide a sense of engagement among lawyers (starting with law students) with the content of the laws they help to implement.
