About the lecture
George Winterton was one of Australia's foremost experts on the Constitution and constitutional law, with an international reputation. A long-standing Professor of Constitutional Law at the University of Sydney and Emeritus Professor, University of New South Wales, he is remembered as an outstanding scholar and teacher to generations of colleagues and students.
Professor Winterton was a member of the Constitutional Commission 1985-87 and of the Republic Advisory Committee 1993; an Appointed Delegate to the Constitutional Convention 1998; and foundation member of the Council and Trustees of The Constitution Education Fund Australia. He was the founding editor of Constitutional Law and Policy Review and author of the seminal book on executive power, Parliament, the Executive and the Governor-General. He was the lead author of the influential textbook Australian Federal Constitutional Law, currently being carried into its third edition by Professor Winterton's academic colleagues.
This lecture series was inaugurated in 2010 to commemorate this outstanding contribution and to maintain this legacy of high and uncompromising standards in constitutional law, of considered and dispassionate reflection on constitutional issues, and of dedicated service to the Academy, the Commonwealth and the Constitution.
