Sydney Law Review shapes public discussion about the conduct of Queensland's Attorney-General

Sydney Law Review has published an article that has received media coverage after it found Queensland's law reforms wanting.

The Sydney Law Review has published 'The Great Leap Backward: Criminal Law Reform with the Hon Jarrod Bleijie' by Melbourne criminal defence lawyer Andrew Trotter and Harry Hobbs, a human rights legal and policy adviser at the ACT Human Rights Commission.

In a report published in The Brisbane Times, Vice-president of the Queensland Council for Civil Liberties, Michael Cope, said the article “has the merit of just demonstrating the broad range and depth of the attack on basic principles of due process which were designed to limit the state's power to arbitrarily deprive people of their liberty”.
