Launch of J.V Barry: A Life - November 2007

John Vincent Barry (1903 - 1969) was both a member of the Victorian Bar and a judge of the Supreme Court of Victoria. He was also a historian, criminologist and civil libertarian in an era dominated by the Menzies Government, the Labor Party split and the Cold War. Widely respected for his advocacy skills and forensic insights, J.V Barry is today regarded as the intellectual founder of the criminology discipline in Australia.

This 30 minute slideshow covers the launch of Professor Mark Finnane's authoritative biography J.V Barry: A Life, held at the Supreme Court of Victoria in November 2007. The book was launched by Bar member David Neal SC, and features speeches by Dr Neal, Mark Finnane and John Barry's daughter Susie, as well as archival photos courtesy of the National Library of Australia.
