The Law Council regards the judiciary as a central part of the justice system. International instruments, including the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, the Universal Declaration on Human Rights, and the European Convention on Human Rights, all state that in the determination of civil rights and obligations or criminal responsibility, all people are entitled to a fair and public hearing by a competent, independent and impartial tribunal established by law. The Law Council therefore takes a great interest in any discussion that relates to the structure and role of the Australian judiciary.
