On Monday 4 November 2019, Robertson O’Gorman and the College of Law hosted Scott McDougall (Human Right’s Commissioner) and Saul Holt QC. The focus of the evening was on the practical application of Queensland’s human rights legislation in criminal law cases. Criminal defendants are extremely vulnerable when they face a prosecution by the State with all its might and resources. Protecting their rights and interests is critical. This new legislation, if used effectively, provides a further layer of protection. The role of criminal defence lawyers is critical.
