The constitutionality of criminal organisation legislation

Gray, Anthony (2010) The constitutionality of criminal organisation legislation. Australian Journal of Administrative Law, 17 (4). pp. 213-228. ISSN 1320-7105


This article considers constitutional issues arising from the criminal organisation legislation introduced by the Queensland and New South Wales Governments. It highlights differences between the law of these jurisdictions in this area and the South Australian legislation impugned in Totani; the law of the jurisdictions studied here are an improvement over the South Australian law, however it is suggested that constitutional problems also exist in the Queensland and New South Wales versions.
