Owen Dixon Society Raises a Glass at Ninth Event

The Owen Dixon Society hosted the who’s who of the local Law community on Friday, November 26 for the Ninth Owen Dixon Society Dinner.

The black-tie event featured The Honourable Justice William Ian Binnie of the Supreme Court of Canada as the key-note speaker for the evening. Guests thoroughly enjoyed his address, along with several other short speeches and toasts on the night over a three-course dinner, wine and an abundance of wit and enjoyable company. Toasts included “Lord Denning’s greatness” by Bond University Alumna Kate Allan and “Lord Atkin – a son of Brisbane” by Faculty of Law Professor and Deputy Dean Gerard Carney.

The Owen Dixon Society was founded at Bond University in 1994 in honour of Sir Owen Dixon. Its members include law teachers, students and practitioners who support the ideals of a university education in law put forward by Australia’s most eminent Judge, Sir Owen Dixon (1886-1972). All those in attendance are now members of the Owen Dixon Society until the next dinner.
