dc.description.abstractResearch Background:By invitation, I contributed to the Supreme Court Working Party that produced the free public Exhibition, Lord Atkin: from Queensland to the House of Lords. The Exhibition refines a legal history question – Lord Atkin’s Anglo-Australian significance as a renowned twentieth-century Law Lord. Chaired by the Honourable Justice Peter Applegarth, the Working Party integrated seven components within the Exhibition to develop, as a new medium, a walk-around installation at the Supreme Court Library Queensland from 29.11.17 to 30.11.18, and a permanent online archive. Research Contribution: My major contribution concerns the sixth component, Liversidge v Anderson [1942] AC 206, a notorious executive detention case. This component traverses Lord Atkin’s landmark, internationally-acclaimed dissent therein – its context, content and legacy, and its continued adoption in Australian law. I contributed the major research and, with Justice Applegarth and the Supreme Court Library, fashioned the text/visuals. This component is displayed on a Library wall and online; it underlines the vital importance of strictly scrutinising arbitrary detention’s injustice. The Exhibition is innovative as a judicial-academic collaboration that contextualises and updates Lord Atkin’s legacy – it reflects renewed legal history interest, and offers valuable educational perspectives and resources for lawyers, academics, students and the public. Research Significance: The Exhibition’s excellence lies in its public benefit aims and judicial-academic collaboration, reflecting the judicial call for greater attention to legal history’s lessons. Its opening inaugurated the Atkin Lecture, a public legal lecture delivered by the Honourable Susan Kiefel, Chief Justice, High Court of Australia, on 28.11.17. Justice Applegarth’s accompanying speech recognised my contribution. The Exhibition’s ‘sell-out’ opening, online status, and continued attendance attest to its acclaim.en_US
