Sample something a little bit different each week at Godfrey Tanner Bar with Tanner Tuesday, from knitting to open mic and debates - Tanner Tuesday is fun, free and the perfect excuse to be at the pub on a school night.
The aim of the Q&A is to explore and promote understanding of a contemporary social justice issue. The Forum runs as a Q&A style panel, with panellists chosen from a variety of backgrounds in an attempt to provide a diverse range of perspectives on the issue. The panellists take questions from a moderator before going on to take questions from the audience.
The topic for this year's forum is Mandatory Sentencing. The primary focus of the event will therefore be the implications of the new 'one punch' or 'coward punch' laws that are going through the NSW Parliament, but the forum will also cover the human rights issues raised by mandatory sentencing more generally, as it pops up in multiple areas of Australian criminal law.
The panelists for the night are;
- Associate Professor Dr John Anderson of the Newcastle Law School
- Greg Piper MP, Member for Lake Macquarie
- Howard Brown from the Victims Of Crime Assistance League Inc NSW
- Jillian Kelton from the DPP
As usual will kick off at 6.00pm. Absolutely anyone is welcome for a beer and a insightful Q&A.
