Luncheon with Professor Gillian Triggs, 8 May 2015Lipman Karaslssa_logo

Due to events out of our control we were unable to host a Margaret Nyland Long Lunch on 8 May 2015.  We were, however, still able to host a long lunch with Human Rights Commissioner, Professor Gillian Triggs, as our guest speaker on that date.

Thank you to everyone who attended our Luncheon with Professor Gillian Triggs and thank you our major sponsor Lipman Karas who again sponsored our long lunch.  Click here to see photos from the event.

Professor Triggs gave a very interesting speech about her personal life and career progression, views on the continued necessity of the separation of power between the Parliament and the Judiciary and an insight into the Australian Human Rights Commission’s report: The Forgotten Children: National Inquiry into Children in Immigration Detention (2014).

WLASA is very thankful to Professor Triggs for giving her professional time in this way and to Commissioner Anne Gale for being emcee.

Members who wish to have copies of the photos from this or any other of our events are invited to email our Secretary at

We still plan to hold a Long Lunch in honour of our Patron at a future date and will keep our members informed about this event.  Our committee remains committed to hosting at least one long lunch each year with the general theme of Equality.
