Queensland

Queensland Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie has attracted criticism from across the political spectrum for introducing measures including fettering the judiciary, imposing mandatory sentencing, and concentrating legal power in his own hands. Bills have been introduced and passed within a day, restricting basic rights while removing accountabilities for business. Scrutiny has been further limited in the absence of an upper house and due to government refusal to refer Bills to Parliamentary committees.

KATE GALLOWAY teaches law at James Cook University, and ALLAN ARDILL teaches law at Griffith University. At the time of going to press, the majority of these Bills had been passed.
