Appealing to the Future: Michael Kirby and His Legacy is an analysis of Justice Kirby’s achievements and contribution to the Australian legal system.
For more than three and a half decades, Australia has watched as Michael Kirby’s national and international standing has unfolded. Many have admired his commitment to social and legal reform, as well as his visionary intellectual leadership.
Appealing to the Future is a collection of essays written by eminent legal practitioners and scholars, each reviewing an aspect or theme of Justice Kirby’s life in the law, including his judgments, his contribution to law reform, and his extra-judicial activities and writing.
The book covers a wide variety of legal topics, but underpinning them all is an exploration of Justice Kirby’s values – how they have shaped his judgments and interests and how they have evolved over the years to make him one of Australia’s most renowned and controversial judges.
