Final Report due to the Attorney-General

In its Terms of Reference, the Attorney-General has directed the ALRC to have regard to extensive consultations previously undertaken on the relevant issues, including by considering reports of and submissions to previous state and territory inquiries and reviews.

Consultation Paper and written submissions

Following this review, the ALRC will release a short Consultation Paper with law reform proposals on 27 January 2023. It will accept written submissions on these proposals until 24 February 2023.

Individual views and experiences survey

In addition to accepting formal written submissions from organisations and individuals on specific law reform proposals contained in the Consultation Paper, the ALRC has also provided a confidential survey for members of the public to share their views and experiences on some key questions relevant to the Inquiry. Completion of the confidential survey does not preclude making a formal written submission on the proposals contained in the Consultation Paper – it is possible to do both.
