Jerry Agar Show – Judges need sexual assault training

judges need sexual assault training

 

“The Federal government has introduced a Bill proposing to make sexual assault training mandatory for federally appointed judges. While advanced education for judges is a laudable goal, partner Edward Prutschi raises some concerns over the threat to judicial independence posed by a government legislating what judges must learn. Listen as Mr. Prutschi debates the issue with NewsTalk1010 host Jerry Agar.”
