From 2011, Dr Judy Courtin has conducted many radio and television interviews, and has either written articles or been interviewed by journalists in the Australian and international press advocating for justice for victims and law reform. 

The most recent article is from The Saturday Paper where she argues for a National Redress Scheme that reflects the recommendations from The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. The current scheme is reprehensible and must be changed.
