Lizzie O'Shea introduces the constitution and its separation of powers: parliament, executive and judiciary. She explains that in 1975 the biggest crisis in our constitution took place when the Governor General dismissed the Prime Minister, and his elected government. Professor Cheryl Saunders explains that, under the constitution, it is unclear if the Governor-General had the power to dismiss the government. She talks about the constitution as an historical, and at times vague, document. She outlines some of the problems including no mention of citizenship; no pre-amble; and the races power no longer reflects contemporary opinion. Professor Larissa Behrendt reveals that the discussion around recognition and the races power is one argument, but there is a different argument about sovereignty and treaty. She points out that many Aboriginal people would like to have their sovereignty recognised, to be seen as independent nations, rather than just citizens within the one nation. Lizzie O'Shea wraps up by reminding us about the key concerns of the constitution, and that the high court is there to resolve problems that arise when the constitution is vague.

Lizzie O'Shea introduces the idea that a crime consists of both the action and the intent, that is, what the criminal thought. Robert Richter QC discusses the Mick Gatto case. It is a classic example because there were no witnesses, and because Gatto admitted killing Veniamin. But what was Gatto's intention? Was it self-defence or murder? Robert explains how the gun could be used to support Gatto's claim as having the intent of self-defence. Lizzie and Robert talk about the burden of proof in criminal cases. Richter also reveals that in most of his cases the client pleads guilty, and then his task is to try and get them the best sentence possible. Former Supreme Court Justice Betty King talks about the role of the judge in criminal cases, and the relationship of the judge to the jury. She reveals that she has only ever disagreed with a jury once, and that she has found it to be a good system. She discusses the sentencing act and its effect on judgments. Lizzie O'Shea wraps up by posing the question: have we got the balance right between the punishment and the crime? Find curriculum links at http://legalbriefs.com.au

Lizzie O'Shea points out that our system of law is not the only one. Barrister Julian Burnside QC explains how the adversarial system works, using the metaphor of a sport game. There are two opposing sides and an impartial umpire. Former Justice of the High Court Michael Kirby compares our adversarial system to the European inquisitorial system. He points out that while our system is a good one, its downfall is that it is very expensive. Justice Susan Kenny, the Federal Court of Australia comments that one of the problems of trials becoming increasingly expensive is that she no longer sees as many small cases. This is unfortunate as the smaller cases can often tested the validity of the existing law. Julian Burnside QC suggests a scenario that involves using pre-judgement, and one that doesn't. He asks, what is more important, coming to the right solution, or using the right method? Lizzie O'Shea wraps up by reminding us what defines the adversarial system.
