Welcome to Issue 112 of the NSW Public Sector Newsletter.
In this edition, we highlight one of the more interesting decisions of recent times, Sharma by her litigation representative Sister Marie Brigid Arthur v Minister for the Environment  FCA 560. In that case, the Federal Court of Australia found the Federal Minister for the Environment had a duty of care to protect young people from climate change. Hailed as a world first, should the decision stand it could have significant and wide reaching implications on the operations of government.
In addition, Domestic violence experts from across the country recently came together to take part in the Law Council Australia’s National Roundtable on Family Violence: Awareness, Education and Training, to start a new discussion on how the legal profession could re-think their response to Domestic and Family Violence.
