Baker McKenzie Eminent Visitor Program


About the program

Baker McKenzie has been a philanthropic supporter of the Bond University Faculty of Law since the Faculty’s inception in 1989. In the tradition of this support, the Baker McKenzie Eminent Visitor Program hosts short-term visits by distinguished individuals from around Australia and overseas to the Bond University Faculty of Law. Under the program, three eminent visitors will be hosted per annum.

Each eminent visitor will spend five to six days on the Gold Coast. During this time, they will give at least two formal presentations – one to Bond Law academics and students, and one to members of the local profession or members of the community generally. They will also participate in Faculty life – meeting with academics and students, conducting guest seminars, and so on. Also, the eminent visitor will spend one to two days in Brisbane, where they will present to Baker McKenzie staff and clients, and other Brisbane practitioners. Where feasible, the eminent visitor will also visit the Sydney and Melbourne offices of Baker McKenzie.

Formal invitations to participate in the Baker McKenzie Eminent Visitor Program will be issued by either the Bond University Faculty of Law or Baker McKenzie.
