AGS provides a wide variety of annual and biennial legal forums for Australian Government employees. These include our flagship biennial forums on constitutional law, administrative law, intellectual property, and information and communications technology, as well as annual forums in employment law, FOI and privacy, property and infrastructure, and the civil regulators forum.

They are presented by AGS experts and specialists and will often also feature invited speakers including judges, senior politicians and academics.

Final details for each forum will be posted on this site approximately 4 weeks before the forum date.

AGS is reviewing our 2021 forum program and exploring format options so that we can continue to deliver our high-quality legal conferences to you in this current climate.

Coming events

Constitutional Law Forum

Given the current COVID outbreaks in the ACT, NSW and Victoria, and because we would like to run the Constitutional Law Forum as an in person event, we’ve made the difficult decision to postpone it until early next year (2022).  

We will update you with the new date and details as soon as they’re confirmed and look forward to seeing you then.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email
