The second Sir Moti Tikaram Memorial Lecture will be delivered at the Saweni campus of the University of Fiji at 6.00 pm on 31st October, 2014.
The annual oration was inaugurated last year by Professor Julian Moti QC, the Dean of UniFiji’s Law School, to honour the distinguished life and legal career of Late Sir Moti Tikaram, one of Fiji’s longest serving judges.
Professor Moti QC announced that The Honourable Michael Kirby AC CMG has accepted his invitation to speak at this year’s oration.
A renowned international jurist, Kirby is currently Chair of the United Nations Human Rights Council’s Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. Before he retired, Kirby was a Judge of the High Court of Australia from 1996 to 2009 and served as President of the Courts of Appeal of Solomon Islands as well as New South Wales.
“We are honoured and privileged to have Michael Kirby address us on the topic: Regarding Others as Ourselves: Law and Dignity. I am so pleased he is venturing to Fiji again to pay tribute to our dear friend and the memory of our long association with him,” said Professor Moti QC.
Admission to the lecture will be free.
