Human rights under the microscope: reflections on parliamentary scrutiny

On Thursday, 11 Dec 2014, Prof Andrew Byrnes delivered a presentation at the Law Society of South Australia giving an overview of the mandate and work of the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Human Rights (PJCHR) to identify the possible relevance of the output of the PJCHR in advocacy (including litigation) and identify possible ways in which the PJCHR might offer a forum for advocacy in relation to draft legislation or existing statutes, and to offer a preliminary assessment of the PJCHR’s contribution.
