Issue 15: Dec 2006

As this is the final edition for 2006, Hearsay would like to thank the contributors who have made the first 15 editions possible.

Hearsay is also indebted to the Chief Executive Officer of the Association, Dan O’Connor, along with the staff of the Association, the Department of Justice and Attorney-General and the Supreme Court Library for their ongoing assistance and support.

Lastly, but by no means least, special thanks are extended to Emma Macfarlane, whose tireless work and enthusiasm for the publication made all the difference, and Gregory Hale, our designer, who survived our often unreasonable demands with patience and understanding.

I wish everyone the compliments of the Season and look forward to the publication of the next edition.

Martin Burns, Editor
