Garrick Professor of Law

Professor James Allan

BRISBANE: Constitutional Law, Legal philosophy / University of Queensland.

James Allan holds the oldest named chair at the University of Queensland where he is the Garrick Professor of Law.  He is a native born Canadian who practised law at a large firm in Toronto and then at the Bar in London before moving to teach law in Hong Kong, New Zealand and then Australia.  He has had sabbaticals at the Cornell Law School and the University of San Diego School of Law in the US, at Osgoode Hall Law School and the Dalhousie Law School in Canada (where he was the Bertha Wilson Visiting Professor of Human Rights), and at King’s College Law School in London, England.

Allan has published widely in the areas of constitutional law, legal philosophy and bill of rights scepticism.  His books include The Age of Foolishness: A Doubter’s Guide to Constitutionalism in a Modern Democracy (Academica Press, 2022), A Principled Constitution? Four Skeptical Perspectives (Lexington Books, 2022, co-written with Larry Alexander, Steven Smith and Maimon Schwarzschild), Democracy in Decline (McGill-Queen’s University Press, 2014) and (as co-editor and one contributor) Keeping Australia Right (Connor Court, 2020).  Allan also writes regularly for weeklies and monthlies including being a regular contributor to The Spectator Australia and Quadrant and a sometime contributor to The Australian, Law & Liberty and The Conservative Woman.  As a majoritarian democrat he was absolutely delighted by the Brexit vote.  And as a conservative law professor he has spent almost all of his working life in orthodox left institutions.

Professor Allan has published widely in the areas of legal philosophy and constitutional law, including in all the top English language legal philosophy journals in the US, the UK, Canada and Australia, much the same being true of constitutional law journals as well. Professor Allan also has a sideline interest in bills of rights; he is opposed to them. Indeed, he is delighted to have moved to a country without a national bill of rights. He has been actively involved in the efforts trying to stop one from being enacted here in Australia. Professor Allan’s latest book is Democracy in Decline (published mid-2014). Professor Allan also writes widely for newspapers and weeklies, including The Australian, The Spectator Australia and Quadrant, and since arriving here in Australia he has given or participated in more than 80 lectures, debates and talks.

Clinical neurologist. Commentator on Political Affairs.

Richard Preppard

MELBOURNE: Clinical neurologist / popular lecturer on medical and political topics for decades.

Richard Peppard is a clinical neurologist.  He has been a popular lecturer on medical topics for decades.  He continues to train undergraduate medical trainees and post-graduate specialists.  He has an academic degree as a Doctor of Medicine from the University of Melbourne.

He has run as the Liberal Democratic Party candidate for Melbourne in the last federal election, and for Hawthorn in the last state election.

His earliest memories of his own country has included our Australian aborigines.  His ancestors helped create and fought for the nation that has become modern Australia.  Together with any new migrant who embraces this country, he is convinced Australia becomes the native land of all who can say, like Sir Walter Scott,

“Breathes there the man, with soul so dead,

Who never to himself hath said,

This is my own, my native land!”

Having given serious consideration to the referendum question, he can address the arguments. He seeks, like others, for a better way than this constitutional change to improve Aboriginal welfare and continue with our multicultural, fair society.

Open your mind to new knowledge.

Through our experience, we’ve learned that people don’t want to be part of a one-sided indoctrination program. Instead, they appreciate having their intelligence respected and eagerly embrace the opportunity to explore the “NO case” while engaging in critical thinking as they make their decision on how to vote in this crucial referendum.

It’s easy. Click here and fill in the form. Let us know the basics, for example your organisations name, your phone number and email address and a guide to the nature of the audience and anticipated audience numbers – plus when you want your speaker.

However, we are keen to help and will be as flexible as possible to suit your organisational needs.

Does it cost money?

It depends on the circumstances. For example, our speakers have offered their services for free and will not charge you for their speaking services. In some cases, if your location is close, they will also not charge for transport or accommodation.

However, as you would understand, if travel, accommodation and other miscellaneous costs are notable, then it would be great if you could cover those costs.

Contact us here and we can work out the details.
