Australasian Consumer Law Roundtable

The first Roundtable was held at the University of Sydney in 2006 and the next year at Griffith University in Brisbane, organised by Gail Pearson and Nicola Howell. Since then it has been held every year at a university in Australia or New Zealand and has included invited academics from the US, Japan and the UK.  The Roundtable has brought together academic lawyers and regulators literally around a table for informal, robust presentation of papers and ideas.
