The NSW Society of Labor Lawyers is celebrating five years of existence this month with a fancy dinner to be held after the group’s AGM next Thursday. A tipster tells us that along with a speech by shadow attorney-general Mark Dreyfus, the society is auctioning off a book with some important names written in it:

“The Society possesses a rare piece of Australian legal-political history. A book inscribed by George Brandis addressed to Sir John Kerr. The inscription is below. The book will be auctioned off at the Society’s anniversary dinner on Thursday 17 November.

What is the book? You will need to buy a ticket to find out.”


We can’t wait to find out what the book is.
