    • Abstract: Campbell, Amy
      The High Court held unanimously that a denial of procedural fairness sufficient to warrant a new trial had occurred in probate proceedings. A substantial wrong or miscarriage arose when the nature of a hearing was changed on short notice to include related proceedings to which a self-represented litigant had not previously been a party and in respect of which he had not taken any steps.

  • Issue Summer 2018 - Trial of the 'Nauru 19'
    • Abstract: Swanson, Michael
      A series of criminal charges were brought by the Republic of Nauru against Mr Batsiua and others (known as the 'Nauru 19') for conduct relating to a protest outside of the Nauruan Parliament on 16 June 2015. Mr Batsiua and two other members of the Nauru 19 were former members of the Nauruan Parliament. The charges included Unlawful Assembly, Riot and Disturbing the Legislature which are all crimes under the Criminal Code, 1899 of Nauru. Most of the defendants pleaded not guilty and argued that they had engaged in peaceful protest, which is protected by the Constitution of Nauru.

If those criteria are not satisfied, the assets will be excluded from the joint balance sheet for 'contributions' analysis but may be a financial resource of that party in the balancing act of what is 'just and equitable'.

    • Abstract: Bathurst, TF; Wootton, NA
      There have been various challenges in the courts to the activities and reports of state based integrity bodies, which have thrown up difficult legal questions. This is partly because these bodies, whose prolific existence is a relatively recent phenomenon, do not neatly fit into traditional tripartite constitutional structures.

           corruption
    • Abstract: Watson, Geoffrey
      The Hon T F Bathurst AC and N A Wootton recently presented an important paper at a symposium on Australia's public integrity institutions. The Bathurst and Wootton paper traced the purposes, activities, powers, and challenges facing integrity commissions around Australia, with a view to identifying particular issues which might confront the creation of a national anti-corruption agency. None of the problems are insurmountable. The real issue is not whether we can have a federal agency, it is whether we should have such an agency.

      In the unanimous decision of The Queen v Bauer [2018] HCA 40, the High Court allowed a Crown appeal and overturned a decision of the Victorian Court of Appeal that quashed 18 counts of sexual offences. Significantly, the court sought to clarify some of the confusion surrounding the admission of tendency evidence in single complainant sexual offence cases.

      As three recent high profile proceedings demonstrate, the construction now placed upon section 35 of the Defamation Act, which imposes a maximum amount, or cap, on damages for non-economic loss in defamation proceedings has led to an increased focus on demonstrating that the circumstances justify an award of aggravated damages.

    • Abstract: Edwards, Joe; Taylor, Ingmar
      What is the optimum way to use technology in the life cycle of a courtroom dispute' The question is not a new one; indeed, we've been asking it ever since those days back in the mid-1990s when IT-types first breathlessly told us about this new thing called 'electronic mail'. But looking around the courtrooms of Australia, it is difficult to avoid the conclusion that we have failed to think systematically about how to realise the full potential of technology in our in-court lives.

  • Issue Summer 2018 - From countess lovelace to Ross
    • Abstract: Assaf, Farid
      In the annals of the history of computing, a more unlikely collaboration would be difficult to imagine. On the one hand Charles Babbage (1791 - 1871), the English polymath widely acknowledged as the father of modern computers and on the other Ada, Countess of Lovelace, the (only legitimate) daughter of famed English poet Lord Byron and considered by many to be the first ever computer programmer. In 1833 Babbage demonstrated his newly constructed Difference Engine (a mechanical calculator) to Lovelace and her mother (whom Byron dubbed the 'Princess of Parallelograms'). Lovelace was inspired by what she saw and went on to become an esteemed mathematician in her own right.

  • Issue Summer 2018 - John Langshaw Austin: Law, common sense and language
    • Abstract: Tang, Kevin
      John Langshaw Austin (26 March 1911 - 8 February 1960) was a mid-20th century philosopher of language who must not be mistaken for John Austin, the 19th century high priest of positivism. As an Oxford Don, J L Austin had only a few publications and he died young. His career was disturbed by WWII when he worked for the British Intelligence Corps on code breaking. He was highly decorated with an Order of the British Empire, the heroic French Croix de Guerre and the USA made him an officer of the Legion of Merit. However, his real eminence was as a thinker. After World War II, J L Austin returned to academic philosophy and became the White's Professor of Moral Philosophy at Oxford. JL Austin is famous for his philosophy of language and developing the theory of speech acts; the difference, if any, between what we say and what we do.

    • Abstract: Cheshire, Antony
      The lot of the young is to rail against any suggestion that things were better in the olden days. Indeed, if history allows us to learn from our mistakes, then things should be better now. Issues such as the resurgence of the far right and antisemitism in Europe and America's retreat into insularity, however, have echoes of the early 20th century and should cause us to question whether we are indeed repeating the mistakes of history.

The court considered an account of profits could include anticipated future profits.

      What is a jurisdictional error' The High Court went once more unto the breach in 'Hossain v Minister for Immigration and Border Protection' [2018] HCA 34, exploring the concepts of 'jurisdictional' and 'non-jurisdictional' error, and offering an interestingly 'modern' take on the old distinction.

  • Issue Summer 2018 - Reasonableness is not in the eye of the beholder:
           Appeals from judicial review applications
    • Abstract: Lyons, Alicia
      In Minister for Immigration and Border Protection v SZVFW (2018) 92 ALJR 713; [2018] HCA 3, the High Court held that not every decision about which reasonable minds may differ is entitled to deference from an appellate court. The question of whether the decision of an administrative decision-maker was 'reasonable', like the question of whether certain conduct is 'unconscionable', is a legal question to which there is only one correct answer. Accordingly, on appeal from a judicial review application, an appellate court is required to 'step into the shoes' of the primary judge and ask and answer that question for itself. Applying that approach, in SZVFW, the High Court held that the decision of the Refugee Review Tribunal (tribunal) to affirm the delegate's decision refusing the respondents' visas was reasonable.

  • Issue Summer 2018 - Some recent statistics on women at the New South Wales

    • Abstract: Scruby, Richard; Tronson, Brenda
      It is often said that one does not see many women appearing in court. Is this due merely to the fact that only 22 per cent of barristers in New South Wales are women' Do women barristers obtain proportionately the same amount of work as men' Is there a difference in the type of work they receive' This article takes a statistical approach to examining these questions by analysing data collected by the Equity and Diversity Committee and the Women Barristers Forum.

      In 'Navtej Singh Johar v Union of India', the Supreme Court of India (India's highest court) declared that to the extent that a provision of the Indian Penal Code criminalises consensual sexual acts between adults in private, it violates four articles of the Constitution of India ('the Constitution'). The provision in question was section 377 of the Indian Penal Code ('section 377') which criminalises 'carnal intercourse against the order of nature'. Section 377 has been widely understood as a prohibition of same-sex sexual conduct.

    • 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.

      On 29 January 2019, Commissioner Bret Walker SC handed down the Report of the South Australian Murray-Darling Basin Royal Commission (the Report). 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).

The case is of interest because the conduct impugned was not the passing of the amendment resolution, which was time-barred, but a subsequent resolution authorising the lodgement of the amended constitution.

Anecdotal evidence indicates that many barristers in New South Wales have experienced sexual harassment, with women barristers who have experienced sexual harassment reporting being subjected to a wide range of behaviours. However, there has been very little research into the working conditions of barristers and their experience of sexual harassment. There is also limited data. In 2015, a Practising Certificate Renewal Survey asked about barristers' experience of sexual harassment.

      The daily practice of law has at times an uneasy relationship with disability. Barristers, we may unconsciously think, should seem invulnerable: in control, and impervious to obstacles. Clients, solicitors and judges (we perhaps assume) want counsel to be a 'safe pair of hands' in litigation and to handle with ease anything thrown at us. We might worry that if we are seen to have a disability, we might be seen to be less able in general.

      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'

    • Abstract: Maconachie, Mark
      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.

  • Issue Autumn 2019 - The furies
    • Abstract:
      I am writing to ask a delicate question of you, viz., should I write a strongly worded letter to Bar News' I am a regional barrister, from Chambers in Newcastle that, on the face of the report on Regional Practice (Spring edition 2018 at page 107) doesn't exist. More pain came from an extract of 'impermissible cross examination' (ibid at page 15) for which yours truly was Counsel at trial. Do I stay under the radar, or thrust myself into the spotlight of notorious obscurity'

  • Issue Autumn 2019 - Advocatus #2: The criminal code: Using language
    • Abstract:
      If one aspires to silken success in Phillip St, it is essential to have a familiarity with more than just the English language. Prima facie, there is Latin. There is also French, not only useful for summers in Provence, and winters in Chamonix, but also in statutory construction, when one may need to resort to the travaux preparatoires. While those of us who practise in the criminal jurisdictions of Sydney's western suburbs are unlikely to require one's French either in court or on vacation, we do need to master at least one other language.
