REVIEWS

Review of Volume 19 (For the Public Good):
This collection of articles enhanced my understanding of what pro bono is … If you’re even vaguely interested in the hows and whys of pro bono, and why you should be part of it, then you’ll find dipping into even one of these articles worthwhile.

Alternative Law Journal, Vol 27 (3), June 2002

Review of Volume 18 No 1 (Reshaping the Judiciary):
A refreshing perspective on the state of judicial independence and accountability in Australia. If Senator Heffernan has left you feeling that we all need a little more rigour in our approach to understanding and talking about our judges and how they go about their business, then this collection of essays is an excellent starting point.
