PM Glynn lecture

In 2017, we established the PM Glynn Lecture on Religion, Law and Public Life to honour the contribution that Patrick McMahon Glynn made to our country. He was one of the founding fathers of the Commonwealth, and a prominent writer, lawyer and parliamentarian. Each year, we invite an eminent person to address an important question at the intersection of religion, law and public life with a view to significantly enhancing the quality of discussion of important matters of public policy.
