Political parties have featured in constitutional practice and theory largely in the context of party bans by militant democracies. In this paper, I will argue that democratic constitutions should seek to achieve two design objectives in relation to political parties:

  1. Separating the state and the ruling party (the separation principle); and

  2. Discouraging parties from becoming factions (the anti-faction principle).

What a Judge of the Federal Court of Australia and a Judge’s associate do in a typical week

Have you ever wondered what a typical week’s work looks like for a Justice of the Federal Court of Australia? How do Judges prepare for court sittings, and what happens in chambers? What does an Associate do, and what skills are required to perform the role?

Judicial method and what Judges do

This seminar is part of the ANU College of Law Visiting Judicial Fellow Program. The Program is designed to develop a greater understanding of the role and function of judges, by allowing Judges to share their knowledge and experience with the broader ANU Law community. Justice Alan Robertson is one of two Visiting Judicial Fellows in 2019.
