Presenters


Dr David Bennett AC KC, 5 Wentworth Chambers
David Bennett AC KC practises in the areas of appellate law generally, constitutional law, administrative law, revenue law, trade practices and competition law, among others. David has held various positions during his career, including Solicitor-General for the Commonwealth of Australia, President of the Australian Bar Association and also President of the NSW Bar Association.

Kiera Peacock, Partner, Marque Lawyers
Rising with unprecedented rapidity from paralegal to partner in our litigation team, Kiera is terrifyingly smart, fast, efficient, hard working and nice. Kiera runs a lot of our largest litigation cases, and has a deep expertise in public and administrative law, particularly electoral law. Kiera ran the Court of Disputed Returns case after the 2019 federal election that clarified the law on misleading electoral advertising, and acts for a number of parties and independent MPs. She is definitely Australia's best and most knowledgeable electoral lawyer. In her spare time, Kiera is surreptitiously subversive and you have to look closely to catch the evil glint in her wide, innocent eyes. We’re onto her, but it took ages. More importantly, she provides the defensive backbone and iron-fisted leadership without which our netball team could most definitely not be called premiership-winning. Her nickname isn't "Captain" for nothing.
