Criminal law – then, now, tomorrow

Supreme Court Library Queensland’s latest exhibition, Criminal law – then, now, tomorrow, is now open.

The exhibition, which will run until December, looks at how society and criminal offences have evolved together since the creation of the Criminal Code 1899 through the upheavals and advancements of the 20th Century, and explores what changes may occur in the future.

From the widespread use of automobiles to the invention of texting, societal developments often necessitate changes in the criminal justice system. This exhibition tracks some of the biggest changes and asks viewers to theorise how the criminal law will change in response to future technologies and challenges.

Visit the free exhibition at the Sir Harry Gibbs Legal Heritage Centre, ground floor, Queen Elizabeth II Courts of Law, Brisbane, on weekdays from 8.30am to 4.30pm.
