The Supreme Court Library’s new exhibition – Without Fear or Favour: exploring Queensland’s legal system – uncovers significant developments that have shaped the law in Queensland. Engaging historical and contemporary materials and interactive displays connect visitors to key concepts underpinning our modern legal system.
- Explore significant cases that shaped the law
- Examine the rule of law, a key principle underpinning the common law system that declares ‘nobody is above the law’
- Investigate the development of the Criminal Code 1899 (Qld), written by Sir Samuel Griffith in 1897, which remains the key source of Queensland’s criminal law
- Discover the history of the legal system and Queensland’s court hierarchy
- Learn about the criminal and civil trial processes
For a limited time only, the exhibition includes a display showcasing Queensland’s connection to distinguished English judge, Lord Atkin, and the enduring legacy of his decision in Donoghue v Stevenson  AC 562.
