CLA CLArion Monthly newsletterNeither a Royal Commission into juvenile detention, nor new litigation over stolen wages, will deliver true justice forIndigenous Australians. National law reform is now mandatory. 31 July 2016

CLA’s 10-point Better Justice plan, released early in 2016, lays out the bare minimum reforms needed in our legal system over the next decade. One of those reforms is entrenching OPCAT, the Convention Against Torture, which would enforce independent inspection of all detention facilities regularly, meaning tragedies like the NT abuse of juveniles would be brought to light much earlier. The Turnbull government must raise law reform to equal importance with infrastructure, transport, banking, union, health and education reform.
