Mandatory sentencing a serious concern — Queensland Law Society

www.qls.com.au [cached]

Queensland Law Society President Peter Eardley said the Society objects to such a move as it aims to legislate non-parole periods for convicted offenders, removing the discretionary power of the courts in sentencing.

Mr Eardley also raised the issue of the difference between creating a sentencing advisory council as an awareness-raising and educational mechanism, and its newly-assumed role of directing critical policy changes.
"The council's educational and engagement role is essential to building better relationships between the community, courts and government," he said.
...
"Queensland is well served by its judiciary; there is no basis for unnecessary and unreasonable fetters on discretion which has always been exercised appropriately," Mr Eardley said.

Consultation on conduct rules for lawyers begins — Queensland Law Society

www.qls.com.au [cached]

These draft rules, which will be known as the Australian Solicitors' Conduct Rules, relate to the honesty and integrity of lawyers, how they conduct themselves with clients, courts and others lawyers, and their duties to the community, Peter Eardley, President of the Queensland Law Society, said.

"The rules are designed to set standards of conduct that maintain public confidence in the legal profession," Mr Eardley said.
"They cover things such as conflicts of interest, for example, when a solicitor is asked to represent a client in a case that involves a former client of that solicitor.
"The Queensland Law Society is conducting the public consultation process on the rules in Queensland and all feedback is to be considered by the Society and the Law Council of Australia before a report is prepared for the state's Attorney-General.
"By conducting this consultation simultaneously with that on the Draft National Bill, Queensland Law Society demonstrates its commitment to the introduction of nationally uniform standards in line with a truly national legal profession," Mr Eardley said.
