Reform the law : essays on the renewal of the Australian legal system by M. D Kirby( Book )

10 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reputation, celebrity and defamation law by David Rolph( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Using Robert Post's seminal article 'The Social Foundations of Reputation and the Constitution' as a starting point, this book argues that the concept of reputation changes historically, reflecting social, political, economic, cultural and technological changes. It also suggests that the value of a good reputation is not immutable and analyses the history and doctrines of defamation law in the US and the UK. Concepts of defamation law are illustrated via case studies from recent Australian defamation law which give general insight into the nature of particular concepts of reputation. Leading on from the case studies and drawing on approaches to celebrity in media and cultural studies, the author conceptualises reputation as a media construct and demonstrates that reputation as celebrity is of great contemporary relevance at this point in the history of defamation law."--BOOK JACKET
Judicial activism : authority, principle and policy in the judicial method by M. D Kirby( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Placing judicial method in a topical context, Justice Kirby suggests that the debate surrounding judicial activism has so far largely passed over the UK judiciary. However, recent developments such as - the proposed creation of a Supreme Court for the UK, the identification of Supreme Court judges as public figures, the increased roles of the judge in reviewing legislation under the Human Rights Act and the role of the courts under the proposed European Constitution - make it unlikely that this state of affairs will continue." "Justice Kirby suggests that UK judges will no longer be immune from this debate, making an examination of what is happening to the judicial method in other countries with similar legal systems particularly timely."--BOOK JACKET

Five uneasy pieces : essays on scripture and sexuality by Louis William Countryman( Book )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 'uneasy pieces' of this book are well-written, challenging and stimulating. They come from the pens of Australian biblical scholars within the Anglican communion, who are skilled in both exegesis and hermeneutical theory. Each essay addresses the question of homosexuality in the Bible, looking at passages in the Old Testament and the New Testament which are often used as a basis for rejecting homosexuality in Christian ethics. Each essay argues, on the contrary, that there is no biblical warrant for condemning either a homosexual orientation or a faithful and committed homosexual relationship. The book, as a whole, makes it crystal clear that both sides of the debate take seriously the Bible as the inspired word of God, and both are seeking to discern the Scriptures in order to hear God's voice speaking to us today

Overturning aqua nullius : securing Aboriginal water rights by Virginia Marshall( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overturning aqua nullius aims to cultivate a new understanding of Aboriginal water rights and interests in the context of Aboriginal water concepts and water policy development in Australia. In this book, Dr. Marshall argues that Aboriginal water rights require legal recognition as property rights, and that water access and water infrastructure are integral to successful economic enterprise in Aboriginal communities. Aboriginal peoples social, cultural and economic certainty rests on their right to control and manage customary water. Drawing on the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Marshall argues that the reservation of Aboriginal water rights needs to be prioritised above the water rights and interests of other groups

Michael Kirby: Don't Forget the Justice Bit( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Filmed before, during and after his final days on the High Court of Australia, this Compass documentary about former Justice of the High Court, Michael Kirby, explores the personal, moral and spiritual convictions of one of Australia{u2019}s most compassionate thinkers and incisive legal minds. Justice Michael Kirby retired from the High Court of Australia in February 2009; he was Australia{u2019}s longest-serving judge. He was recently listed by The Bulletin magazine as one of the top ten creative minds, then again in the top 100 of the most influential Australians of all time and more recently Who Weekly put him as one of the top 25 of the most beautiful people - certainly a unique honour for a High Court judge. But Michael Kirby is a unique man. In 36 years as a judge he repeatedly did the one thing that judges are not supposed to do - he spoke publicly on an enormous range of social, political, scientific, economic, religious and humanitarian issues. Many in the legal profession and the wider community think he speaks too much, believing that he was unable to keep his personal views out of the courtroom. During this documentary Michael Kirby opens up about his life in a way he has never done before. Another contradiction for a man who has been so 'media friendly' throughout his professional life is that, in many ways, he has been intensely private and guarded about his personal life. It was only nine years ago that, at the age of 61, he publicly revealed for the first time that he has been in a homosexual relationship since 1969 with partner Johan van Vloten. This film marks the first time that Johan van Vloten has spoken publicly about their life together. This film shows the public face of Michael Kirby on the High Court, the private face at home with his father Donald, his late mother Jean, his partner Johan and his brother Justice David Kirby. It also reveals the spiritual side and his lasting connection to Anglicanism."--ABC website
