The Biennial Ingram Lecture is delivered by an international personality, eminent scholar or diplomat who has been awarded the Ingram Visiting Fellowship within the UNSW Faculty of Law & Justice. The Fellowships are funded by the Ingram Fund for International Law and Development, generously donated to the Faculty of Law & Justice by Mr James Ingram AO, former Executive Director of the United Nations World Food Programme.
In addition to delivering the public Ingram Lecture, Ingram Visiting Fellows undertake collaborative research activities and projects with researchers and academic staff within the Law & Justice Faculty on current issues of international law having special regard to the concerns of developing countries.
