Australasian Law Reform Agencies Conference (ALRAC) 2020

Postponement of Australasian Law Reform Agencies Conference (ALRAC 2020)

Due to the increasing uncertainty regarding the implications of coronavirus (COVID-19), the Australasian Law Reform Agencies Conference (ALRAC 2020) has been postponed.

Participants are being notified by email and full refunds for registration fees have been processed.

The well-being of our participants and communities is a primary concern. We are also conscious that the majority of ALRAC participants would be travelling significant distances to attend. We have made an early decision regarding postponement to minimise the potential for financial consequences and inconvenience for participants.

There has been significant interest in ALRAC in recent months, and we are keen to ensure strong representation from across Australasia and beyond at the next conference. Accordingly, we expect to hold ALRAC in July 2021 on dates to be advised. The theme of the conference will remain unchanged.

We will retain the financial support applications we have received to date, and will confirm with those applicants whether they wish to apply for support to attend in 2021.

Thank you for your understanding. We hope to see you in Brisbane in 2021.

Any questions should be directed to  

ALRAC 2021

In 2021, the Australian Law Reform Commission will host the Australasian Law Reform Agencies Conference (ALRAC) in Brisbane, Australia.

ALRAC 2021 will bring together people involved in law reform across Australasia and beyond, to explore what is working – and what is not – in the field of law reform today. The Conference will focus on family law and family violence reforms, and also on the processes and administration of law reform agencies. Speakers will include legal experts, experienced government lawyers and leading practitioners.
