The first article in a three-part series, The Lawyer’s Guide to Child Sexual Exploitation (PDF) details the best practices that have been used by the legal profession in Australia to fight child sexual abuse, exploitation and related matters.
Key points:Child sexual abuse is the most serious crime in AustraliaThe Lawyer and I spoke about issues like consent and responsibility, the law and how to deal with people involved in the criminal justice systemIt’s a book about a profession that’s been around for many years, and how the law can make the world a better place for everyoneIt’s been a long road, but I’m glad to have found this book.
It’s written with the Lawyer in mind, so it will provide some background and advice on issues that may arise, including whether to use a lawyer to resolve a claim or to go it alone.
The Law is available from the Law Library or the publisher’s website.
