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.
