Australasian Law Reform Agencies Conference (ALRAC) 2020

On 13 and 14 July 2020, the Australian Law Reform Commission will host the Australasian Law Reform Agencies Conference (ALRAC) in Brisbane, Australia.

ALRAC 2020 will bring together law reform agencies from across the region to explore what is working – and what is not – in the field of law reform today. The Conference will cover issues relating to substantive law reform topics, including reform of family law and family violence, and also issues more specific to the processes and administration of law reform agencies. Speakers will include legal experts, experienced government lawyers and leading practitioners from across the region.

Participants from Pacific Island nations are particularly encouraged to attend ALRAC 2020. Historically, the cost of attendance for representatives from the Pacific has proved a major barrier to participation in the conference. As the ultimate goal of ALRAC is to advance the work of law reform agencies across the region, the organising team is committed to ensuring as many countries in the region as possible are able to participate. Limited funding assistance will accordingly be available to facilitate attendance by interested parties who meet the eligibility requirements. Applications for funding assistance will open in February 2020.
