Today Australia prides itself on being a place of fairness and equity for all its citizens. But the Australian Constitution still does not recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians as the first people of this land. Importantly, we now know that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their cultures form part of the longest culture on Earth and evidence of their presence in Australia is now dated back over 60,000 years. It is only right that modern Australia should recognise and acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and culture - past and present - in our Constitution to record their valued place as part of this country and our national identity. Most of the states - Victoria, Queensland, New South Wales and South Australia have already amended their Constitutions to formally recognise Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Australians as the first people and nations of their jurisdictions.
The Magna Carta has lived for over 800 years. From what started out as a simple set of complaints to King John from the barons into and international symbol of liberty, this document has given us rights. No one is ever above the law and everyone is equal in the eyes of the law. Without the Magna Carta we might not have the rights we so much value today (The British Library, 2015).
Even though both Canada and the United States are democratic countries, there are key differences in how their government functions and how the country is ruled. For starters, Canada is a Constitutional Monarchy and is ran by prime minister Justin Trudeau and the Parliament, on the other hand, the US is a Republic Democracy ran by a president and the Congress. In the US the head of state is its president but in Canada, for any law or bill to pass the parliament needs to have Royal Assent which is a signature of the Governor General or the Queen. Therefore, this does kind of limit the prime minister’s powers.
The levels consist of local councils, state and federal parliaments where each level conducts elections, creates laws for citizens, is responsible for providing public goods and services and punishes those who abuse these laws (Victorian Government, Unknown). The national/federal Parliament has the power to enact law and govern Australia and is divided into three arms of government; legislature, executive and judiciary. The legislature, otherwise known as the Parliament of Australia, is made up of democratically elected representative within Australia (Australian Government, 2016). The Parliament of the Commonwealth comprises two separate chambers; the House of Representatives (the lower house) and the Senate (the upper house). The House of Representatives encompasses 150 members, each representing a different electorate and the Senate in composed of 76 members where each state has 12 senators and the territories have 2 senators each.
This is totally vital. In Australia clinicians are currently enlisted by the Federal government through a unit called AHPRA (Aust. Wellbeing Professionals Registration Authority), in the USA the State governments "permit" clinicians and in the UK enrollment of the British Psychological Society seems, by all accounts, to be the required qualification with status as a "Sanctioned Health Psychologist". State enrollment/licensure/contract guarantees that the therapist is included in proceeding with instruction. I am not versed with all the European and Asian nations obviously, yet a decent beginning stage is to distinguish the significant clinicians' associations and your nearby Department of Health and make enquiries through

Federally, the Liberal Party runs in a Coalition with the National Party, the Northern Territory Country Liberal Party, and Queensland Liberal branch of the Liberal National Party. Currently, the Liberal Party is running the government.
3. Critically analyze the comparative advantages of each system. Common Law and Civil Law are two main legal systems that are very different. They each have a different background that developed their own features, their basic principles and how those principles should be applied.
Dicey and Sovereignty According to AV Dicey, “The principle of parliamentary sovereignty means neither more nor less than this: namely that parliament thus defined has, under the English constitution, the right to make or un make any law whatever; and further, that no person or body is recognized by the law of England having a right to override or set aside the legislation of parliament…” Dicey stated that parliamentary sovereignty requires three principal aspects, parliament is the supreme law making body and may enact
The constitution of the Australian Government is inspired by the United States and the British government. Let’s look at how the United States government and British government are similar and how they differ. Australian Government Australian government has three levels of laws making, often referred to as three levels of government which are Federal Parliament, State/Territory and Local.
