Adani vs The Law

Why would a local conservation group need to enforce the government's own laws and why would George Brandis react in a manner that seeks to align Australia with authoritarian states?

Find out in this episode, where Viv uses the Carmichael Coal Case as a talking point with:

  • Cristy Clark, Lecturer in Law at Southern Cross Uni and contributor to online zine - The Conversation (Cristy's current research is focused on the intersection of law, development and the environment)
  • Jeff Smith, Executive Director, EDO, (independent community legal centre specialising in public interest environmental law) NSW and lawyer for the mighty Mackay Conservation Group
  • Professor Samantha Hepburn, (Associate Head of School (Research), Law & Busines, Deakin Uni with a strong research interest in unconventional gas regulation in Australia and is also examining the regulatory development of carbon capture sequestration both in Australia and internationally.)


"...under a democratic system, the rule of law means that the government is constrained by law and can be held accountable by the people." – Cristy Clark
