Court is a place full of formalities – you must bow your head when entering the courtroom, stand when speaking to the Magistrate or Judge, address them as “Your Honour” and, of course, dress and behave respectfully.

One defendant learnt this the hard way when he turned up to court wearing thongs, shorts and a singlet.

Dressing inappropriately can give the impression that you do not respect the court and are not taking the process seriously.

So what should you wear in court?

Our latest blog has the answers.
If it’s your first time in court, you may have a lot of questions about when to turn up, what to bring, and what you need to wear. Especially i

Just a few years ago, roadside drug testing operations were rare with the overwhelming focus being on drink driving rather than drug driving.

But the situation has changed in recent years, with police attributing a growing number of road road fatalities to the presence of drugs.

According to police, a whopping 1 in 6 NSW drivers tested for drugs over the Easter long weekend registered positive readings – which is a far higher proportion that those who tested positive for alcohol.

Our latest blog discusses the increasing focus on drug driving, including the applicable offences, defences and penalties.
If you were nabbed by police driving with drugs in your system over the recent Easter break, you are certainly not alone. According to police, an incredible one

Many of us share an enormous amount of personal information online – where we are, what we’re doing, what we think of other people or organisations, and other sensitive information which might be best kept secret.

For those in the media spotlight, it may be even more important to keep potentially harmful information to themselves.

Millionaire Robert Durst learnt this the hard way when he allegedly incriminating himself in three murders by uttering the words “What the hell did I do? … Killed them all, of course” while still miked up.

The apparent slip-up contributed to Durst being charged with murdering a friend in 2000.

Our latest blog outlines the law when it comes to incriminating yourself on TV, radio or social media – giving examples.

Imagine being accused of a serious crime when you are completely innocent.

You may have had great faith in the police force and the criminal justice system up to that point, and maybe even been a strong supporter of “tough on crime” approaches.

But think about being arrested in front of your family, put in the back of a paddy wagon, driven to the police station, put in the ‘fish tank’ and charged with a serious criminal offence such as a sexual assault.

Imagine being then subjected to many months or even years of criminal proceedings - from court date to court date – having your name dragged through the mud, losing friends, your career, your finances and nearly losing the plot.

You may even be refused bail while awaiting your eventual trial – left to languish in prison, making it harder for you to build your defence.

You might think, “surely it’ll all be ok in the end – a jury of 12 people will have to see that I’m innocent”.

Picture the ordeal and stress of going through a criminal trial, then having to stand before the jury and hearing the jury foreperson say the work “guilty”, then listening to a despising judge sentence you to several years in prison.

And then spending years locked up in a prison cell, away from your family – having lost everything.

Imagine that new evidence then comes to light proving that you are innocent – vindicating you at long last.

What an ordeal! What an injustice! Thank God that you’ll at least be financially compensated for this travesty, right?

Wrong.

Read on for more.
Being wrongly imprisoned for an offence would be highly upsetting, but did you know you may not even receive compensation for your time in prison? Read on here.

Public protests have been instrumental since the late 1800s in achieving rights for workers, female voting rights, civil rights and environmental protections.

But it seems that governments around Australia aren’t the greatest fans of public protests – gradually withering down the right over the years.

We have previously written a blog and posted videos about the fact that residents of NSW no longer have the right to protest - that they could face a criminal record or even prison for taking part in a “unlawful assembly”, which is a public gathering that is not approved by police or the courts, whether peaceful or otherwise.

Now, Western Australia is taking it one step further with some of the toughest laws against public protests in the country.

Our latest blog has more.
Australians have the right to protest, but this right is increasingly being removed by state governments. Find out the extreme new measures proposed in WA.

Drawing conclusions and making judgments about various topics is something that we all do from time to time.

Often those conclusions will accord with our pre-existing beliefs and values, which may cause us to place undue importance on certain information and less significance on other material which may be just as valid.

But when powerful bodies like media organisations make false accusations against individuals, the repercussions can be devastating – even fatal.

Our latest blog discusses the tragic case of a 57-year-old man who took his own life after accusations were relentlessly leveled against him over the death of a young girl in Brisbane.
Making false and unproven accusations can lead to terrible consequences, especially when the media jumps to conclusions. Read our blog for more information.

With “tough on crime” approaches to criminal justice filling prisons to capacity, there have been calls for alternative ways to deal with those who are convicted of crimes.

One of those ways is to consider imposing home detention orders on elderly offenders rather than sending them to prison.

While elderly inmates presently comprise only 2% of the Australian prison population, the percentage is expected to rise sharply in coming years due to the aging general and prison population.

The cost of housing and caring for elderly inmates can be as much as three-times that of their younger, healthier counterparts; and that cost is likely to place further financial strain on an already costly criminal justice system in coming years.

What are your thoughts about the subject?

Our latest blog has more.
Should elderly offenders be excused from serving time in prison, or be released early? It’s a question that is increasingly relevant, as overcrowding in our p

In 2013, the Queensland Newman government passed the Vicious Lawless Association Disestablishment Act (VLAD) making it a criminal offence punishable by a mandatory prison term for members of ‘declared organisations’ to associate with one another.

The laws were designed to disrupt the alleged illegal activities of motorcycle clubs and thereby reduce organised crime.

But as foreshadowed, the Act has made a mockery of the law in certain situations – exposing friends and even partners to the possibility of being sent to prison for nothing more than hanging around with each other.

Our latest blog has examples.
By Ugur Nedim Imagine being charged with a criminal offence and facing a six months in prison for simply having a few drinks at the pub with your partner. It might seem incomprehensible, but this is exactly what happened to a couple and their friend after they decided to have a couple of beers ...

"Search engines have come a long way and are heading in an exciting direction. To improve your website's visibilty, it is no longer good enough to just have a well optimised site & quality back links. Your website and off-site strategy needs to offer your target market an enhanced user experience. Not only does your website need to provide relevant content, be error free and accessible, but it also needs to engage, inspire, and gain 'social' approval. Ongoing, SEO requires the collective talents of strategists, creatives, techheads, user experience designers, information architects, content writers, social media gurus and traditional marketers. A successful SEO campaign is no longer a campaign run only by SEOs, but a campaign run by the collective talents of many specialists." - Bill Vasiliadis
