'Human rights may not be the first thing that springs to mind when one reflects on 2020, but amongst the many unprecedented changes to the legal landscape this trip round the sun is that 2020 marks the Queensland Human Rights Act’s first year in effect.
'To catch up on what you may have missed in this important development in Queensland’s history, the Queensland Council for Civil Liberties is pleased to host the Inaugural Queensland Human Rights Commissioner Scott McDougall to deliver the 2020 Derek Fielding Memorial Lecture and reflect on the establishment of our state’s first Human Rights Commission.'
