Tomorrow's Law

Tomorrow's Law

Edited by Hugh M Selby

CONTENTS

This challenging title examines attitudes and behaviour that force changes to the Australian Parliament and judge-made law.

There are three themes in this collection:

  • the search for and respect for our community values;
  • the need for a broad choice of ways to resolve disputes; and
  • the importance to us as individuals and as a community of trust and betrayal.
In difference guises, these themes recur during the examination of the role of the High Court, the place of euthanasia, the investigation and punishment of crime, the right to know and the right to be left alone, making decisions to benefit others, and how experts and other decision makers can be held to account.
