This collection, edited by Associate Professor Julie Debeljak (Monash University) and Associate Professor Laura Grenfell (The University of Adelaide), examines how rights figure in the law-making process.

At this special event you will hear from two leading figures in the Victorian legal community who will draw upon their own expertise regarding the role of the executive and parliament in making law within a human rights framework.

The topics covered in this new title are presented by experts and scholars to offer a comprehensive analysis of how rights are scrutinised in all Australian jurisdictions.
