This was my trials questions and we basically just based each para off a specific law reform. So whether that be in regards to mandatory sentencing (one punch law reform), domestic violence (provocation law reform) or juries (majority verdict law reform). you can also make links to the theme and challenge of changing ethical and moral values (or whatever that T&C is)

Hope this helps :)

Hey,
I'd just do paragraphs based on issues/law reforms. Some that you could do include:

- Anti-Terror Act 2005 (held for 14 days without a charge, amended 2017 so children as young as 10 can be held without a charge).
- Lockout laws following R v. Loveridge case (2013). This also led to minimum and maximum mandatory sentencing with The Crimes and Other Legislation Amendment (Assault and Intoxication) Act 2014 NSW
- Right to silence laws: The Evidence Amendment (Evidence of Silence) Bill 2013 (unfavourable inference drawn against those who don't cooperate with police or tell everything they know about a crime in the interrogation process).
- Revenge porn laws: Crimes Amendment (Intimate Images) Bill 2017
- Changes to bail laws: Bail Act 2013 (removes presumption against bail, has a risk assessment).
- Consorting laws: Crimes Amendment (consorting and organised crime) Act 2012 (NSW)
- Provocation defences: Provocation (Amendment) Act 2014, R v Singh case and the gay panic defence.

Hope this helps!!  ;D
