With the Queensland Labor Government recently committing to introduce a Charter of Human Rights in Queensland, and the ongoing operation of human rights legislation in Victoria and the ACT, is it time to rethink the introduction of a Charter in NSW? And if we do, what form would it take, and do we need one?

As part of NSW Labor's Fringe program at the 2018 Annual Conference, the NSW Society of Labor Lawyers will be hosting a panel discussion with three leading experts in human rights law: Kate Eastman SC (human rights barrister), Sera Mirzabegian (NSW Convenor, Australian Lawyers for Human Rights, and Barrister at Tenth Floor Chambers) and Jonathon Hunyor (CEO of the Public Interest Advocacy Centre).

Our panel will be discussing the options for reform, the operation of the statute in other jurisdictions, and whether there is an overriding need for NSW to commit to a Charter.

This event is part of the NSW Labor Fringe program. In order to attend this event, you will need to register your details in the form below.
