Changes are under way at the Childrens Court where a new committee is working on process improvements for youth justice in Queensland. This month’s edition of Proctor discusses what practitioners will need to know about the changes, including two new practice directions. The April issue also looks at amendments to the Australian Consumer Law that extend protection against unfair standard contract terms beyond consumers to include small business, and reports on a Family Court decision that, for the first time, orders the registration of a pre-birth surrogacy order made in the United States. Check out this month’s Proctor, in hardcopy or online, for these features and much, much more.
Proctor is now available to be read on your smart-phone or tablet, with iOS and Android apps now available for Queensland Law Society members. Android and Apple users can now download the app from their respective online stores below.
