Mayo Lecture

Mayo Lecture

The Mayo Lecture is an annual event run by the College of Business, Law and Governance in conjunction with the James Cook University Law Students Society (JCULSS) in honour of Mrs Marylyn Mayo, JCU's foundation law staff member. The JCULSS instituted the Mayo Lecture in 1991 as a tribute to Marylyn's work in maintaining a law presence at JCU and, ultimately, in establishing the full law degree here.
