November 2017 marked the 150th anniversary of the birth of Lord Atkin in Tank Street, Brisbane, Queensland. In his article, “Lord Atkin: Principle and Progress” (previously published in The Australian Law Journal Vol 90 Part 10), Justice Peter Applegarth chronicled the philosophy, influences and enduring legacy of Lord Atkin, whose landmark judgment in Donoghue v Stevenson continues to guide the common law to this day.
Lord Atkin’s remarkable life and achievements are commemorated in the currently ongoing exhibition “Lord Atkin: From Queensland to the House of Lords”.
