    • Abstract: Goodyear, Benjamin
      If a party had a choice between losing a case against a represented party or losing a case against a self-represented litigant, it is suggested that the latter might be preferred (even if counsel might think otherwise). Against the former, the losing party may be ordered to pay the costs that the represented party has spent on lawyers. Against the latter, the general rule is that the self-represented litigant would not be entitled to compensation for the value of his or her time spent in litigation.

      If the recently withdrawn Hong Kong extradition bill (the Bill) had been given legislative effect it would have enabled the Chief Executive to make ad hoc orders for extradition of permanent residents of Hong Kong to mainland China. The Bill was plainly aimed at working around the Basic Law's express preclusion of surrender to other parts of China, or to paraphrase the Hong Kong government, to fix a 'loophole'.

    • Abstract: Thew, Penny; Assaf, Farid
      As the Honourable Tom Bathurst, Chief Justice of New South Wales, recently observed, 'the nature of the legal market is arguably different' from that of the early 2000s. His Honour was speaking in part of the legal market currently being a buyer's market and observed that the profession would need to adapt to the change wrought by technological innovation, including in the form of the recent transitioning of directions hearings in the New South Wales Supreme Court registrars' lists to the online Court system. His Honour posited that 'physical appearances in Court might start to become a rarity, with perhaps more virtual appearances.'

    • Abstract: Zaki, Mark
      Sentencing statistics are one of many resources available on the Judicial Information Research System ("JIRS") to assist courts with the sentencing exercise. Informed use of statistics by practitioners optimises the assistance that counsel may provide to a sentencing court.

      The JIRS statistics now contain penalties relating to the new community-based penalties which became available on 24 September 2018.

      The Commission recently enhanced the statistics viewer to include a domestic violence offence case characteristic filter, improved communications tools, and access to relevant offence provisions and maximum penalties.

  • Issue Summer 2019 - Australian racism: The story of Australia's first and
           only black premier and chief justice - Sir Francis Villeneuve Smith
    • Abstract: Kirby, Michael
      Sir Francis Villeneuve Smith was the third Premier and fourth Chief Justice of the British colony of Tasmania. He was born in Haiti and his mother, Josephine Villeneuve, was of African descent. His skin colour was dark. He migrated to Australia from England, where he had been educated and admitted to the Bar. His brilliance soon won him high public offices. However, his skin colour led to social isolation for his mother and denigration and insults intended to wound him. He was called 'Blackie Smith', 'Nigger' etc. But his talents overcame the racial taunts and the outrage that 'a coloured person is sitting in judgment upon the Anglican (sic) race'. His experience was accompanied by racist laws and policies in Australia against which we must be ever vigilant.

  • Issue Summer 2019 - Debtors' prison and the rules of the prison
    • Abstract: Bryson, John P
      In 1834 judgment debtors who were in prison in Sydney for not paying their debts could take up lodgings in Prince Street, a few streets away from the Gaol. On 1 March 1834 the Judges of the Supreme Court made a Rule which defined limits of the Public Gaol in Sydney. This Rule was part of a large and complex array of laws now vanished which dealt with imprisonment of debtors. Parts of this complexity were law and practices which allowed debtors to live within the Rules while notionally in prison. The Rule said '... it is expedient to enlarge the limits of the said prison, by appointing fit and suitable places in the vicinity thereof, to be within the rules of the same.' The bounds were: '... all that part of George-street, exclusive of the houses on each side thereof, which lies in front of this prison, and leads to Essex-street; so much of Essex street, exclusive of the houses on each side thereof as leads to Prince street; all that part of Prince street which lies between Argyle street at the one end and the space leading to Charlotte Place, at the other end thereof, together with so much of the open space, called Charlotte Place as leads to St Philip's Church and the Scots Church, and also all the houses (excepting public houses) on each side of Prince-street, and the said respective Churches.' The Rule went on to exclude ' ... all tavern and victualling houses, and ale houses licensed to sell spirituous liquors, or of public entertainment ...' Other provisions make clear that the prisoners referred to were prisoners in civil proceedings, not prisoners serving sentences or awaiting trial for crime. The Rule of 1 March 1834 became rules 15 and 16 of the Rules and Orders for the Regulation of the Sheriff's Office made later in 1834.

      Two of my favourite books about wellbeing are 'The 100-Year Life' and 'Younger Next Year'. Not surprisingly, the theme of these books, and others like them, is how one can progress from one's 50s to a healthy and fulfilling second half of life.

After two extensions to the 'leave date' and several failed attempts by Prime Minister Theresa May to secure an approved withdrawal agreement, on 24 July 2019 Boris Johnson was appointed Prime Minister. On 28 August 2019 the UK Parliament was ordered to be prorogued by Queen Elizabeth II upon the advice of Boris Johnson. The prorogation was to suspend the Parliament for five weeks from 9 September to 14 October 2019 - with MPs returning just 17 days before the UK was scheduled to depart the EU on 31 October 2019.

Where disclosure does not need to be compelled - because the party wanting to use a document, or information, already has it - any injunction must be sought on an alternative basis.

    • Abstract: Balendra, Kavita
      Let's be honest, litigation to the average person is expensive. However the ongoing debate about the costs of litigation has somewhat unfairly focussed on the role of barristers in particular. There have been attempts to reduce the involvement of lawyers through the use of technological innovation and legislative change. Whether this has resulted in better outcomes for litigants is questionable, but what it has done is cause a worrying decline in the availability of work for the junior bar, especially the very junior bar.

  • Issue Summer 2019 - A brief meditation on artificial intelligence,
           adjudication and the judiciary
    • Abstract: Assaf, Farid
      In the previous summer (2018/19) edition of Bar News I provided a brief overview of AI and its increasing use in the legal profession. In this article I seek, somewhat ambitiously, to examine some potential implications of AI upon adjudication and the judiciary itself. In so doing, I have had to make a number of (perhaps unrealistic) assumptions. Firstly, at some stage in the future, humanity will have achieved what has been dubbed 'General Artificial Intelligence', that is, AI possessing intelligence equivalent to human intelligence. Second is that there are no Constitutional impediments to an AI assuming the role of a superior Court justice. Readers may understandably scoff at the prospect of a non-biological entity assuming the role of a human judge and dismiss such a notion as the realm of science fiction. Such an attitude may require reconsideration. Since my last article appeared in Bar News in December 2018, the Beijing Internet Court has launched an online litigation service featuring an artificially intelligent female judge and the Estonian Ministry of Justice is designing a 'robot judge' to process and decide a backlog of small claims disputes. These are just a few examples.

    • Abstract:
      It is unlikely that the American Ellen Sturgis Hooper had the circumstances of 21st century antipodean junior barristers in mind when she wrote these words in 1840, but they are entirely apposite to the daily realities of at least this junior, leaving aside the blissful month of January, which offers such riches of beauty and freedom from duty that it more than makes up for the preceding year's eleven months of grind. Duty is an important feature of the practice of a barrister, but the closest experience of beauty most barristers have in the course of daily practice is found in a walk through Hyde Park on the way to the District Court. Those barristers who crave beauty in their work may seek to find it in elegant, yet succinctly drafted, written submissions. Yet nowhere in barristerial practice is the gulf between beauty and duty so apparent as in the process of finalising opening written submissions.

    • Abstract: Dillon, Hugh
      In 2010, a 'new' Coroners Act came into force. I use the ironical quotation marks because there was little really new about the Act. As is standard procedure, the Act included provision for a review after it had been operating for five years. The Justice Department began that review in 2014, expecting to make a few cosmetic changes. The then State Coroner, Michael Barnes, who had overseen the implementation of a new Coroners Act in Queensland in 2003, saw many deficiencies in the NSW Act and suggested a serious rewrite. He did not, however, expect that, by March 2019, the statutory review would remain incomplete and that whatever is to become of the coronial system would not be resolved until after the State election in that month.

  • Issue Autumn 2019 - Cap on electoral expenditure by third party
           campaigners struck down
    • Abstract: McDonald-Norman, Douglas
      In 'Unions NSW v State of New South Wales', the High Court considered the validity of two provisions of the 'Electoral Funding Act' 2018 (NSW). Section 29(10) of that Act imposed caps on electoral expenditure by 'third-party campaigners'. These caps were significantly lower than the permitted expenditure of those political parties which had endorsed more than ten candidates for election to the NSW Legislative Assembly. Section 35 of the Act prohibited third-party campaigners from acting in concert with other persons to exceed the applicable cap for the third-party campaigner within specified periods. In five separate judgments, every member of the Court concluded that s 29(10) impermissibly burdened the implied freedom of communication on matters of politics and government protected by the Constitution. With the exception of Edelman J, who found that s 35 was invalid (at [160]), all members of the Court found it unnecessary to decide the question of the validity of s 35 in circumstances where there was no cap upon which that section could operate. This decision further illuminates the extent and implications of the implied freedom following the re-articulation of the test for what is 'reasonably appropriate and adapted' in 'McCloy v New South Wales' (2015) 257 CLR 178.

      Hot on the heels of R v Bauer (2018) 92 ALJR 846; 359 ALR 359 ('Bauer'), the High Court has once again reiterated the subtle but important thresholds to be met before admitting tendency evidence. In McPhillamy v R, the High Court reversed a majority decision of the NSW Court of Criminal Appeal that had upheld the conviction of the appellant for six counts of sexual assault. In ordering a new trial, the High Court emphasised that while evidence of a sexual interest is relevant, its probative value generally turns on whether the evidence demonstrates a tendency to act on that interest.

The Royal Commission was instigated by the government of South Australia, the tail-end state of the Murray-Darling Basin, long frustrated at the over-extraction of water by upstream states. The legacy of over-extraction can be seen particularly starkly in the Coorong, a Ramsar-listed wetland at the mouth of the Murray, which has been suffering from algal blooms and a drastic decline in its internationally-significant birdlife for many years. This is just one of the many riverine ecosystems which should have been protected by the Commonwealth and affected states under the Murray-Darling Basin Plan (MDBP).

However, there has been very little research into the working conditions of barristers and their experience of sexual harassment. There is also limited data.

We might worry that if we are seen to have a disability, we might be seen to be less able in general.

  • Issue Autumn 2019 - Socio-economic 'diversity' at the NSW bar
    • Abstract: Edwards, Joe
      When the Bar News Committee made a decision to have a special edition of Bar News focussing on the diversity of the modern Bar, potential articles were swiftly identified addressing race, gender, disability, sexuality, parental or caring responsibilities, and the like. However, the editor then asked a difficult question: does a focus on these issues, important though they are, distract attention from the elephant in the room; which is to say, can a person who comes from a low or lower socio-economic background make it at the Bar' The question floated, issues of nomenclature and measurement arose around the Committee table. What is meant by the term 'socio-economic background'' Does it mean anything different from the older term 'class' or the more newfangled one 'social mobility'' And even if the term has a meaningful content, how do you measure it' More particularly, how would you measure the socio-economic background of a barrister'

Diversity, a huge topic, where do I even start' Then I thought, perhaps I should write about myself, my experience and my journey. A journey that has taken me through many countries, and enriched my experience and outlook on life as I met and became friends with people from all walks of life.

      The 2019 Law Term commenced on 29 January 2019. To mark the occasion religious ceremonies were held at St Mary's Cathedral, St James' Church, the Great Synagogue, the Auburn Gallipoli Mosque, the Pan Orthodox Cathedral of the Annunciation, and St Patrick's Cathedral, which celebrated the inaugural Red Mass at Parramatta. With the exception of the Pan Orthodox and Parramatta celebrations, each of those events was photographed for Bar News. Unfortunately schedules for the Pan Orthodox and Red Mass Parramatta ceremonies became known too late for arrangements to be made to record those events.

  • Issue Autumn 2019 - Advocatus #1 police officers fibbing'
    • Abstract:
      Where am I' I pondered as I sat at the Bar table. I was in suit and tie so I knew I wasn't anywhere the Evidence Act applied. I strained my ears and could discern a judicial creature of some sort suggesting that a police officer was not to be believed. Not to be believed' What is this place' I cried in silence as a solicitor elbowed me in the ribs. What does she want' I thought. An objection of some sort' I awoke regardless and rather than lodge another baseless objection I remembered that I was in a commission of some sort. It was a hearing. There were police officers on my side, police officers on the other. All of the officers were giving evidence one by one and what was emerging was that they disagreed with each other. They were giving different narratives when compared to each other's evidence which led to a conclusion that one or more of them were lying. Not only that, but the judicial creature hearing this evidence had twigged.
