Observing a beloved partner’s demise brings deep sadness, but new case law brings hope for surviving partners. Queensland courts have cleared the way for sperm extraction—from a deceased partner—to allow in vitro fertilisation. This month, Proctor explores the courts’ decisions, the processes involved and the ramifications for practitioners. This edition also considers privacy law as it relates to a recent case about an employee who refused to use fingerprint scanner technology to record work hours. You’ll also see the latest Australian legal profession profile, an update on sexual harassment in the profession, and much more in August Proctor.
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.
