CLA’s new TV advertisement, as well as a half-hour radio program, are coming closer to fruition, and are likely to be ready for launch this month. As well as these internal ‘production’ issues, CLA is building a cross-party coalition to introduce a private members’ bill in the federal parliament to restore democratic rights to electors in the two Territories, NT and ACT.
We’re asking for three representatives – a former judge, current barrister, and late-course law student – at a September criminal justice forum convened by Home Affairs Minister Bob Debus; anyone who would like to contribute an idea or comment for the forum is welcome to contact the CLA Secretary.
CLA congratulates media spokesperson Dean Prail on achieving his Masters degree, and also Robert French on appointment as Chief Justice of the High Court. There’s a rundown of Australian and international liberties and rights news, plus a listing of key activities undertaken by CLA in July.
