“Welcome to our June 2010 edition of the Public law report – our second edition as part of the Norton Rose Group. This edition brings you many useful and informative articles to help you stay abreast of legal and policy developments that are relevant to government. In this edition, we consider the latest reforms to the Commonwealth freedom of information landscape, the establishment of a new federal court under Chapter III of the Constitution – the Military Court of Australia, and what employers should be aware of in relation to new forms of social media such as social networking platforms and their impact on employment policies. We also take a look at some interesting decisions in the administrative law context, including the importance of understanding the statutory basis behind the power to make executive decisions under certain legislation.”
