Graham Taylor - International

In 1969, Graham Taylor was awarded the Humanitarian Trust Studentship at Cambridge University.  The Studentship was established by Sir Hersch Lauterpacht, probably the greatest international law scholar and Judge of the International Court of Justice to study international law under the Whewell Professor of International Law at Cambridge (in his case Professor R. Y. Jennings, later Chief Judge of the International Court of Justice).  The Studentship was offered every two years in competition from around the world.

In 1974 he was appointed Vice-President of the Civil Procedure section of the World Congress of Comparative Law.

In 1975 he was invited to participate in the international project “Access to Justice”, funded by the Ford Foundation and headed by Professor Mauro Cappelletti of the European University Institute and Stanford University.

From 1975-1977 he was one of three members of the Law Council of Australia Committee on Defamation.  The other members were Mr John Winneke QC, later Chief Justice of Victoria and Mr Graeme Uren, QC.

In 1978 he was elected to the International Association of Procedural Law and was until relatively recently one of only two persons from Australia and New Zealand elected to membership of that body.
In 1980 and again in 1985 he was invited to deliver papers at the United Kingdom Colloquium on Comparative Law.

In 1998 he was invited by the Supreme Court of Israel as one of six international lecturers at a Conference to celebrate the 50th Jubilee of the Court.
