            Drug Law Reform Debate (PDF ebook)

            Edited by Healey, Justin

            Illicit drug use in Australia is a significant justice, health, economic and social welfare issue. Relaxation of drug laws has been proposed by a number of reform groups, criminologists and commentators in response to concerns that existing government policies and criminal sancti...ons have been a failure. Opponents claim that such a relaxation of laws, including decriminalisation and legalisation, will remove the deterrent effect and increase drug use and unleash even greater drug-related problems into the community. This book examines the prevalence of illicit drug use, and presents a range of arguments in the drug policy reform debate. Should the law remain tough on drugs, or go softer on hard drugs? Also includes: worksheets and activities, fast facts, glossary, web links, index.

            Youth Crime (PDF ebook)

            Edited by Healey, Justin

            Young people aged between 15 and 19 years commit three times more offences than any other members of the Australian population. Certain types of offences are committed disproportionately by young people; juveniles are more likely than adults to come to the attention of police, fo...r a variety of reasons. Compared to adults, young people are also more at risk of a range of problems conducive to offending, including mental health problems, alcohol and other drug use, and peer pressure due to their immaturity and reliance on peer networks. What makes juvenile offenders different from adult offenders? When should children be responsible for their crimes? What kinds of diversionary measures are available to keep young offenders from detention and reduce the likelihood of re-offending into adulthood? This book presents the latest statistics on young offenders. It also provides an overview of the juvenile justice system in Australia, including current trends in the detention and diversion of young offenders.

            Walking On Water: A Life In The Law (EPUB ebook – Main)

            By Porter, Chester

            Reflections and rumblings on human nature and the law from one of Australia's longest serving criminal defence barristers, once nicknamed 'The Smiling Funnelweb', Chester Porter QC. Chester Porter's life in the law began in 1948, when at the age of 21 he was the youngest lawyer t...o be admitted to the Bar. He took silk in 1974 and quickly became known as Sydney's best defence lawyer, shunning the courtroom theatricals favoured by many of his rivals.'Young Chester' was the man others would go to if they were in strife. Chester's most famous cases included successfully defending the 'once only's' such as Detective Sgt Roger Rogerson on bribery charges, and Judge John Foord who was accused of attempting to pervert the course of justice. He was counsel assisting the Northern Territory Commissions of Inquiry into the convictions of Lindy and Michael Chamberlain. After clocking up scores of legendary victories, some of Macquarie Street's more larrikin lawyers produced a limited edition t- shirt with 'Chester Porter Walks on Water'- a slogan that sums up an illustrious career that spanned more than 50 years. This is not merely a reflection of human nature at its worst but also an overview of how the law has changed and developed over the years. From the McDermott Royal Commission to the reform of forensic evidence and the future of the law in Australia, this is the long-awaited memoir from one of Australia's most respected QC's.
