What I’ve been listening to: Paul Mullaly on crime

I was sorry to have missed Judge Paul Mullaly speaking at the Royal Historical Society of Victoria on “Crime in Port Phillip: 1835-1851” in June 2009.   Through the power of podcast, I was able to download it here.

We live in wonderful times.

His presentation (about an hour in length) starts with a brief summary of the extension of the law to Port Phillip in the 1830s,  the status of aborigines before the law, and some cases heard before the courts at the time.
