Lizzie O’Shea explains that Australia was considered by the first fleet to be terra nullius. Essentially, that means nobody had claimed ownership of the land. But of course people had been living in Australia for thousands of years. She introduces the Mabo case, and its key players. Lizzie talks with Bryan Keon-Cohen QC, who worked on the Mabo case which progressed slowly through the courts for ten years. One of the many problems that the team had to overcome was that of hearsay evidence. Indigenous communities rarely used written documents, and so ownership of land is passed down by telling the person what they owned. In our courts, that becomes hearsay, and does not carry as much weight as a written document. Professor Larissa Behrendt talks about finding out about Mabo as a law student. She compares it to what was happening in Canada around the same time. Lizzie O’Shea wraps up by reminding us that courts are bound to follow precedent but can occasionally radically change how law is interpreted, as they did with Mabo.

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

As a young boy growing up in Onslow, Western Australia, Patrick Tittums dreamed of flying a plane. Inspired by the adventures of pilot James 'Biggles' Bigglesworth, in the books that his mother would buy for him, Patrick let his imagination run wild and a lifelong passion for flying developed. But in his teenage years, bowing to peer pressure, he took to drinking alcohol. A seemingly harmless and fun pastime quickly spiralled out of control and for nearly thirty years, he toiled in the dark times until the thunderstorm of life washed him clean and he took control of his journey to fly into clear skies.
