Hi,

For police powers, i'm not sure if this has been said yet as I was just skimming over responses, but I think the Roberto Curti Case is good looking into rising tension within society
http://www.smh.com.au/nsw/police-used-excessive-unnecessary-unlawful-force-on-brazilian-student-roberto-curti-court-hears-20141117-11o3tr.html

For bail, the Steven Fesus case links well with balancing rights of offenders, victims and society as the media article (http://www.smh.com.au/nsw/steve-fesus-bail-reasons-revealed-by-judge-following-outcry-20140618-zsd6d.html) shows a lot of conflicting perspectives. In particular, Ken Marslew states "Imagine having lost a loved one and then seeing the person accused of their murder out on bail, walking freely. It's a slap in the face to anyone who has lost a loved one in those circumstances.''

For partial defences such as provocation, Insight's episode 'Provoked' features Phil Cleary, who says "If you're gonna argue that provocation is based on a woman allegedly having an affair, women are dead women walking". This episode was in response to the case R v Singh.

I hope these help :)

Hey Robert! You've impressed me! I haven't heard of the second and third case, and after checking them out, I agree that they are super useful for Legal. The quote you've provided for the Steven Fesus case is the exact kind of quote that does a lot of arguing for you in an essay - it sums up your argument by bringing in authority. Excellent work sourcing these - thanks for sharing :)

The Roberti case is wonderful for legal students and police powers, also discretion. It's a great case to have up your sleeve!

Just adding an extra resource, but for human rights!

I haven't studied the content yet, but a quick skim over the syllabus has the role of media in promoting and enforcing human rights. As such, I think this buzzfeed article is both relevant to the course and a contemporary issue that could be great in a short answer question. In particular, Obama's statement that he “fundamentally disagrees with the notion of discriminating against individuals because of their faith or religion.” would definitely promote human rights.

Thanks Robert! Yep, the 'Trump Travel Ban' is going to be a fantastic case study for Human Rights and (if you study it) World Order! :) a great find!

If you're interested in the history (and present use) of Gay Panic Defence in Australia, this article is an excellent resource.

This is an unconventional form of provocation defence that is still valid in Queensland and South Australian jurisdictions.

This is excellent to talk about for law reform (a potential crime essay question for the HSC - seeing as it is a theme/challenge).

Here is an article about a flight attendant that was involved in the rescue of a victim of human trafficking. This could be helpful for people studying the contemporary issue of human trafficking and slavery. It also gives a nice stat by the National Human Trafficking Hotline for the amount of human trafficking cases reported in 2016.

Hi legal eagles! If you're looking for cases, or looking for an explanation of a particular case, be sure to check out this website which has a library full of cases. I never knew it existed during my own HSC, but I couldn't not share it, such a great resource!

This is fantastic! Thank you so much! Especially for all the work that everyone puts in here at ATAR notes!

Hey!
I did the HSC last year (2017) and my 10 units were English Advanced, English Extension 1, English Extension 2, Legal Studies, Maths and Studies of Religion 2. I achieved my ATAR aim of over 90!

I loved tutoring and running essay writing workshops (privately and at InFlow Education) so much that I decided to study a Bachelor of Secondary Education, majoring in English and minoring in Maths!

If you're thinking about tutoring, let me know x

I had a little giggle at this. #Ruleoflaw

The Police Minister Troy Grant took a photo of a sheep in the back of the car in front of him while he was in traffic and shared it to twitter later (or perhaps at the time) as a funny little incident to share. A journalist asked him if he took the photo from the driver's seat, he admitted he did.
"When Mr Grant was informed that what he did was illegal, he contacted police to dob himself in for a $325 fine and four demerit points."
You can see the pic here.

Nobody is above the law ;)

So as Elyse pointed about this website about the police minister (http://www.smh.com.au/nsw/police-minister-troy-grant-fined-325-for-taking-photo-while-behind-the-wheel-20170321-gv3ecp.html), could I use this article for the Contemporary Issue: The individual and Technology?

Hey! So the technology in that article is mobile phones, and the legal issue is new laws concerning mobile phone use in motor vehicles - I think that suits!

In general you need to pull from the list in the syllabus ;D

The main reason I shared that article is for proof of the rule of law - so perhaps you could link it with that when you're talking about technology section of the syllabus as a double whammy :)
