Melbourne Law School alumni are invited to an exclusive Alumni Seminar presented by Leon Zwier (LLB 1979), Partner at Arnold Bloch Leibler and Commissioner of Cricket Australia’s Code of Behaviour Commission. This seminar is titled "Cricket Sanctions: law or lore"

About the Seminar:

On the recent tour of South Africa, the Australian Cricket Captain, Vice-Captain and Cameron Bancroft were knowingly concerned with ball tampering. Cricket Australia claimed that the players had breached the laws of cricket (law) and engaged in conduct that would bring the game in to disrepute (lore).

In this seminar, Leon will present a case study of these events and take a straw poll on whether the penalties were reasonable in the circumstances.

The event includes breakfast, networking opportunities with fellow alumni and a Q&A session with Mr Zwier following the seminar.
