Authored by Hon Nick Goiran, this article published in The West Australian Jurist, Vol 4 discusses the vexed issue of freedom of speech. It looks into whether the parliament can have a meaningful role in protecting such freedom. This paper’s focus is on the role of Australian State parliaments in protecting free speech and in limiting it when considered justified by other public interests. The author seeks to reference this to four different case studies: shield laws for journalists; the sexualisation of children; hate-speech laws and parliamentary privilege.
