The University of Tasmania Law Review have just released the latest volume, 36 (1). This general edition contains three peer-reviewed articles. The first article in the issue, by William Bartlett, analyses the development of the implied freedom of political communication in Australia within the context of the recently decided case of Brown v The State of Tasmania. Second, Lachlan McDermott's article evaluates the distinction between rocks and islands under the law of the sea after the South China Sea Arbitration. In the third article, Kenny Yang argues that the Western model of mediation, as a form of alternative dispute resolution, must incorporate cultural values if it is to be successfully adopted in Asian states. Each makes an insightful and important contribution to their respective fields.
Volume 36(1) also includes a paper by David Porter, an Acting Justice of the Supreme Court of Tasmania, based on a speech he delivered this year concerning the layers of conflict that legal practitioners and law students endure and the resulting mental harm. This issue also features a case note and four book reviews written by law students studying at the University of Tasmania.
A hard copy of this issue is now available in the Law Library.
