I am delighted to present this issue of the QUT Law Review. This issue begins with an invited contribution by the Hon Justice David JS Jackson, ‘The First Limb of Barnes v Addy: A Taxonomy in Tatters,’ which was presented as the 2014 WA Lee Lecture in Brisbane in November 2014. The paper by Patricia Easteal, Anne Caligari, Lorana Bartels and Emma Fitch examines work cultures in Australian private law firms and recommends measures for flexible work to address barriers experienced by women lawyers. We are also very pleased to include in this issue of the QUT Law Review a Special Forum of four papers presented at the World Indigenous Legal Conference that was held at QUT in 2014 and a review of Irene Watson’s book, Aboriginal Peoples, Colonialism and International Law: Raw Law. I am grateful to Marcelle Burns for her role as Guest Editor of this Special Forum. Finally, we also include in this issue two papers from emerging scholars. I am grateful to Andrew Garwood-Gowers, Nic Suzor and Ben Mathews for their role as Guest Editors of the Emerging Scholars’ section.
