May 2019

We have provided legal services in relation to the extensive regulatory policy of the University of Sydney as it affects students there. For instance we advised and provided extensive submissions for 2 clients at the University of Sydney wrongly accused of violence at a pro women safety protest in September 2018.

The solicitor investigator for Usyd concluded the claims were unfounded. Indeed supporters of pseudo intellectual Bettina Arndt (who made the complaint against our 2 clients) were shown demonstrably via phone camera video to have been violent by barging through a group of peaceful chanting protesters, one with a leading elbow.

Here is a useful summary of the case outcomes:

- 4 June 2019 - Students given green light to protest after university dismisses free speech concerns
