High Court

Listen to High Court

In recent times, it seems the Australian Constitution has been in the headlines more often than not. Accordingly, the High Court has been in the spotlight, too.

What are our expectations of the judiciary with regard to keeping the other branches of government in check? How well do citizens, and legislators, understand the constitution and the High Court’s role in interpreting it?

Sally Warhaft is joined by John Hewson and Adrienne Stone for an episode that delves into recent matters facing the High Court, and its role in Australian democracy today.
