The 2014 ALTA Annual Conference is being hosted by the Faculty of Law at Bond University, Gold Coast, from Thursday 10 July to Saturday 12 July 2014. The Conference Theme is ‘Thriving in Turbulent Times: Re-imagining the Roles of Law, Law Schools and Lawyers’, which explores this turbulent time for the discipline of law. Law schools are being subjected to ever increasing levels of regulation and pressure to change what and how they teach. But this crisis is also an opportunity: an opportunity to embrace change, to reimagine the roles of law, law schools and lawyers, and to recreate ourselves as something new and better. This conference is an examination of the many challenges confronting law today, and some of the exciting solutions that may change the face of law tomorrow..
