Year 9: Justice and the Courts

12.00

Justice and the Courts is designed for the Year 9 Civics and Citizenship unit. The 12-page student resource and teacher presentation slides provides students with engaging and up-to-date case examples pertaining to the issues of justice and the Australian court hierarchy. Teachers will find all materials referenced at the conclusion of the resource for further detail.
The issue of justice undermined is examined through the Chamberlain case which was brought to light once again in early 2017 with the passing of Dr. Michael Chamberlain. The press across the nation once again published numerous articles on the Chamberlain case which 'ended' in 2012 with the issuing of a new death certificate for Azaria Chamberlain. The focus here is on the role of the media. More recent cases are used to illustrate how justice can be undermined when there are excessive court delays or when there is witness tampering. The reference to specific cases will make this resource accessible to students and they will become interested in following the outcome of the cases presented. Please note: the Powerpoint Presentation will be sent to your inbox on purchase of this student resource booklet.
