Dominating the media this fortnight is the Commonwealth Government’s use of the Biosecurity Act to limit travel of Australian citizens to and from Australia.

In Victorian Government news, a bill has been introduced to ban aggressive and violent parents from entering school grounds. The proposed ban will extend to those parents who engage in threatening or abusive communication through social media and other channels.

In the Courts, jury trials are back with the first criminal jury trial being empaneled since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Victorian Supreme Court has recently handed down many judgments concerning administrative law.

Finally, we congratulate Rowena Orr QC on her appointment as the next Victorian Solicitor-General.

We hope you enjoy this edition of our public sector newsletter.
