Women and the Law in Australia
Posted: 19 Jan 2011
The first book of its kind, Women and the Law in Australia provides practical advice on dealing with issues in the practice of law that are of specific importance to women. It is intended not just to highlight the problems that women experience with the legal system as defendants, complainants, victims, witnesses and practitioners but also to identify pragmatic steps for solicitors, barristers, community workers, policy-makers and women. It covers many areas of law from ADR to trusts and equity and identifies specific issues for women with disabilities, indigenous women, lesbians and migrants.
