The University of Tasmania Law Review have just released the latest volume, 36 (2). This general edition begins with an editorial by former High Court Chief Justice, the Hon Robert French AC. Following the editorial, there are four peer reviewed articles. The first peer reviewed article is by Nadia Stojanova which analyses and provides practical guidance as to the circumstances in which employers can make deductions from employees' pay under the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth). Second, Wee Loo and Ee Ong provide commentary on the 2016 amendments to Singapore's Consumer Protection (Fair Trading) Act and make recommendations for improvement with reference to consumer protection mechanisms from Australia and Hong Kong. The third article by Samuel Diprose Adams explores the issues surrounding the prohibition of firearms in Tasmania by their appearance. The fourth article by Susanna Dechent provides an overview and analysis of Australian interceptions of asylum seekers, particularly in light of the United Nations General Assembly adopting the New York Declaration. Completing the issue are a case note and four book reviews written by University of Tasmania students.
