This Part of the Environmental and Planning Law Journal includes the following articles: “Supply-side climate policies and the Yasuní-ITT Initiative” – Andrew Macintosh and Amy Constable; “Rethinking threatened species legislation in the context of climate change” – Sophie Whitehead; “Victorian ecologically sustainable forest management: Part II – A cautionary tale – The Brown Mountain case and its ramifications” – Rhett Martin; “Planning for coastal erosion and inundation in Western Australia: Practices and perceptions from the local level” – Ashley Robb, Laura Stocker, Michele Payne and Garry Middle; “No way to build a highway: Law, social justice research and the Beeliar Wetlands” – Toby Nisbet and Geoffrey J Syme.
The last Part of the Criminal Law Journal for 2012 provides a great mix of articles and sections on a range of topics. An article by Arie Freiberg and Sarah Murray seeks to explain why sentencing laws are so difficult to invalidate under Ch III of the Commonwealth Constitution; Toby Nisbet examines the scope of the provocation defence and consent in Code jurisdictions; and Jane Sanders and Edward Elliott argue against the continues use of affray as a prosecutorial tool against otherwise minor antisocial behaviour. There is also a sentencing review (2011-2012) from Kate Warner, a Digest of Criminal Law Cases and a Phillips’ Brief. Not to be missed!
