2001 marks the l0th anniversary since the Australian Federal Government made a marked effort to use taxation policy as a means of encouraging environmental responsibility. To the natural resources industry this translated into the provision of a special deduction for current or capital expenditure incurred on rehabilitation-related activities on or after 1 July 1991. More generally, a regime for the deductibility of environmental expenditure, such as environmental impact studies, and a regime for environmental protection expenditure were also introduced during this period.
This paper traces the history of teaching introductory business law at the former Kuring-gai College of Education, which was incorporated into the University of Technology, Sydney, in January 1990 through until the present time. It explains the challenges faced by the Law Faculty cross-disciplinary teaching team when in 2001 Ethics was introduced as a component of the introductory Business Law subject. It also discusses how the team overcame the logistical problems of teaching the subject across two university campuses as well as an offshore campus in Kuala Lumpur. A further complexity was the necessity for the subject to be taught to two cohorts annually, totalling in excess of 1,400 students. The paper will elaborate on the methodology adopted by the team to resolve these issues.

This article discusses the importance of free access to essential legal information to the rule of law and the role of Legal Information Institutes (LIIs) in providing such access. The main features of the new Hong Kong Legal Information Institute (HKLII) and its differences from pre-existing systems are described. HKLII is the first LII in Asia: a LII is a free, independent, non-profit Internet facility providing relatively comprehensive coverage of the essential legal information of a jurisdiction, in this case Hong Kong. This article describes HKLII's first year (July 2001-July 2002), from the initial discussions on its possible creation to the installation of its own server in Hong Kong. It explains that the development of HKLII has been made possible by the policies of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government and judiciary, which support access to legal information. The future development of HKLII and its potential impact on free access to legal information elsewhere in China and other jurisdictions in Asia is discussed.

Australia is the first jurisdiction in the world to introduce a national private telecommunications industry ombudsman. Created in 1993, the Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman (TIO) has grown in jurisdiction and importance, becoming a regulatory cornerstone of the fully competitive post-1997 Australian telecommunications regime. This paper examines the role of the TIO as a mechanism for dispute resolution and as an industry regulator, suggesting that it provides an example of an innovatory regulatory process which transcends the divide between deregulation and proregulation. This raises the question as to the applicability of the ombudsman institution in terms of the regulation of telecommunications. Through highlighting the conciliatory nature of the ombudsman, the role of the TIO as a regulator is considered in its Australian context.

Booth, T 2002, 'The Aftermath of Homicide: Meeting needs and expectations of Survivors through conferencing in NSW', Conferencing, Circles and other Restorative Practices, Minneapolis, US.
This paper aims to introduce an innovative family group conferencing program that has been recently implemented in NSW and to explore the program's potential to meet the needs and expectations of homicide survivors currently unmet by conventional criminal justice processes. The program is an overtly victim-oriented, communitarian model of restorative justice that operates on a post-conviction basis. There are no restrictions as to the nature of the offences that may be the subject of a conference provided there is an identifiable victim. Using a case study of a recent conference involving a homicide, the presentation will demonstrate the operation of the conferencing program and its application for homicide survivors.
