Abstract

The author subjects the recently enacted Victorian Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities Act 2006 (Vic) to a detailed series of criticisms. In particular, he considers the main operative provisions of this bill of rights, their provenance in the New Zealand and UK models, and the ways in which we can expect this instrument to hand significant powers to the judiciary.
