Program Overview

Further Details

  • Full Description

    Human rights are essential in a democratic and inclusive society that respects the rule of law, human dignity, equality and freedom.  Since coming into operation in 2007, Victoria’s Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities Act 2006 (VIC) (the Charter) has become an increasingly powerful tool for lawyers when considering human rights obligations and the law. The Charter has assisted in resolving matters positively across a range of legal areas, including criminal, health, family, employment and guardianship cases. It has also assisted our courts by aiding judicial interpretation in litigious disputes and has provided a vehicle for checks on government decision making.
