Natural justice

What we have that we can all see that justice is being done – essentially procedural fairness in the legal system.

The most important concepts are the right to a fair hearing, and that people are innocent until proven guilty.

Others include:

  • Appeals system
  • Right to legal representation (Dietrich 1992)
  • Right to trial by jury (their peers)
  • Habeas Corpus — present the body — must be brought before a magistrate within 24 hours of arrest
  • Fairness and Equality before the law
  • Beyond reasonable doubt, or on the balance of probability.
