Lawyers who help people protect their rights aren't the problem here

Article in The Conversation (11.7.14) by James Farrell and Julian Burnside on the indepedence of the juduciary:  'Australia’s courts serve us well, acting independently in their application of the law. However, that doesn’t protect them from attacks for performing their legal and constitutional duties.' ... 'The bedrock of our democracy is the rule of law and that means we have to have an independent judiciary, judges who can make decisions independent of the political winds that are blowing.'
