The Rule of Law Institute of Australia and our sister organisation, the Rule of Law Education Centre welcome those new members who signed up at the Victorian Commercial Teachers Association Conference.
We thank you for supporting our work and submissions to government.
The Rule of Law Institute of Australia is one of the only organisations in Australia that advocates for discussion of current issues and acts as an independent check on health of the rule of law in Australia. The Institute actively comments on laws which affect the presumption of innocence, freedom of speech and the press, as well as dealing with technical aspects of legislation such as retrospectivity, separation of powers and equality before the law.
The Rule of Law Institute of Australia is an independent, politically non-partisan, not-for-profit body formed to uphold the rule of law in Australia. The Institute aims to promote discussion on the importance of the principles which underpin the rule of law.
Model Litigant Rules
A level playing field in litigation between the government and the individual.
Access to Justice
The rule of law can only work when there is access to justice.
Checks and Balances
Accountability and transparency
Free Speech and Media
To be able to speak out about the way the law is administered without fear.
Common Law Rights
Presumption of innocence, procedural fairness, protected by an independent judiciary.
The Rule of Law Institute of Australia works with its sister organisation, The Rule of Law Education Centre. The Education Centre works with teachers and students to educate and inform school students about how the Magna Carta and subsequent rule of law principles have impacted and contributed to the history, culture and legal processes of Australia and to strengthen the rule of law and human rights through education.
