Assessing the First Year of the ACT Human Rights Act

The Regulatory Institutions Network at the Australian National University and the Gilbert + Tobin Centre of Public Law at the University of New South Wales are holding a one day event in Canberra that will assess the first year of Australia's first Bill of Rights, the ACT Human Rights Act 2004. Speakers will look at the impact it has had in the courts, parliament and the bureaucracy. They will also discuss the effect it might have in the future, including upon the national Bill of Rights debate and in light of the consultations with the Victorian community on whether that State should enact a Charter of Human Rights.

The event will focus on changes to law and policy made by Australia's first Bill of Rights. The day is aimed at both a legal and non-legal audience. The cost, including lunch, is $99 (or $44 for concessions). A copy of the brochure and Program is available. To have a copy sent to you or for further information, please contact:
