Times have changed since the first week long Bali conference in 1987, attended by a couple of dozen or so delegates:  4 papers were presented over a leisurely two days, plus a day and a half ‘workshop’ on the Criminal Code 1983 (NT), of which no record appears to be extant.

By contrast, over 200 delegates from every Australian jurisdiction attended the 2013 conference, with a program of 25 papers, a play-reading and a ‘jurisdictional round-up’, all crammed into three and a half days.
