If you have an interest in learning  more about Australian law and would like to meet law librarians from Canada, the United States, the UK, New Zealand and other jurisdictions, the JSI will provide a wonderful opportunity for you. The Hon Michael Kirby AC CMG (former Justice of the High Court of Australia) will deliver the keynote address on the first morning of the conference.
