TJ Ryan, as leader of Queensland’s first Labor government to have a majority in the lower house of the state parliament, implemented wide‑ranging political, economic and social reforms in the face of opposition from the upper house and resistance from the Supreme Court of Queensland.
After his untimely death in 1922, Ryan’s successors launched sustained attacks on the upper house and the Supreme Court of Queensland. In this lecture, Justice Keane AC will consider the extent to which the attacks on these institutions of government should be regarded as part of Ryan’s legacy.
Refreshments will be served in the Portrait Gallery after the lecture.
