Adventures in Law and Justice: Exploring Big Legal Questions in Everyday Life

Cover
UNSW Press, 2003 - 376 Seiten
This book presents a down-to-earth explanation of topical and newsworthy law-and-justice dilemmas. Written for readers interested in public affairs and current events, as well as those grappling with "big picture" issues in law and government as students, professionals or concerned citizens, this book serves as an introduction, a critique, and a thought-provoking read all in one. Vividly illustrated with Australian and international examples, it tells law's stories, exposes law's myths, and delves into major law-and-justice questions which affect us all. Some of the questions the book addresses, include: Should Australia become a republic or stay a constitutional monarchy? Is the legal system in crisis? Should Australia have a bill of rights? Is native title legally dead in the water? Can the law decide which conjoined twin should be saved when only one can live? Can someone in pain lawfully end his or her life with medical assistance? Does Australia's involvement in the war against terrorism threaten democratic freedoms and international law? Should companies have social obligations legally imposed on them?
