Here's a few international treaties i've found:

The use of punishments such as mandatory sentencing is in breach of a number of International Covenants including the Convention of the Rights of the Child (CROC) 1989, the Declaration of Human Rights, and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR).
Useful also for Human Rights in Law and Society, esp if you're doing asylum seekers for the case study.

I have a booklet of cases my teacher gave me, I'll type some cases up when I have the time.

Recent LMCD is going to help you get into a six. Most of the acts that have been listed here have been amended.

Criminal Procedure Amendment (Evidence) Act 2005 (NSW)
 Allows victims of sexual offences to give evidence by way of video audio or transcript.
 Amends the Criminal Procedure Act 1986.
Criminal Procedure (Sexual Offence Evidence) Act 2003
 Prohibits those accused of rape, who are not legally represented from cross examining their victims. (R vs. MSK & MAK [2004]
Criminal Procedure Further Amendment (Evidence) Act 2005
 Court to disallow improper questioning during cross-examination
 Complainant to give evidence in camera
 Disallowing circulation of sensitive information i.e. Photographs.

Thank me later. I couldn't be fucked typing it out again, I just copy and pasted some which I'm writing up now in a summary.

EDIT: Huratio, awesome list, however a lot of those acts have been amended and with no explanation or short description of it, it isn't very useful for most people.

i just posted it there for people to see what i have done. only my class may benefit from it as these are the cases that we have done.

if you really want help i suggest you make a list the same format as mine and that would help you remember the LCMD for essays etc.

It might already be in here but I cant find it - does anyone know the law that set the age of criminal responsibility (donna incopax?)

And any cases...Theres like the Murder of H...but i dont know any others...

The Death of Corey..


EDIT:

Legislation:
Jury Ammendment (Verdicts) Act 2006 - allowes for 10/2 and 11/1 majority verdicts in all trials (as oppose to unanimity in criminal proceedings)
Jury Act 1975 - Women now cant reject jury duty based on gender.

Cases
R v Koliach
Black v R
Cheatle v R

All three relate to possible ammendments to the verdicts to majority

hey does anyone have any case studies that highlight the need for discretion in the legal system? it would be super helpful.
also, have a bitch of question "examine why commitment to criminal laws is not shown equally across the community, using relevant examples to support your response."

if anyone has any idea of how i can tackle this, email me at chauntellems@hotmail.com
please :D
and thankyou
