There are two great new recently released Hot Topics:
Human rights and Domestic violence.
Human rights provides an overview of human rights law from its origins and sources, through to the development of modern human rights law. It examines how human rights law operates in Australia, with reference to current issues, and includes the full text of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and further information resources. It is a great resource for HSC Legal Studies students studying the Human Rights topic.
Domestic violence defines domestic violence, gives a detailed explanation of the law on apprehended violence orders, and discusses other legal remedies. It is a very useful resource for those Legal Studies students studying the Crime or Family topic.
