Discussion Paper released!

We are pleased to announce the release of the Discussion Paper for this Inquiry, Equality, Capacity and Disability in Commonwealth Laws (DP 81).
The Discussion Paper provides a detailed account of ALRC research so far, and includes more than 50 proposals and a number of questions for people to consider and provide feedback on.

The Discussion Paper is available in HTML, PDF, and as an ebook.

ALRC President Professor Rosalind Croucher, who is leading this Inquiry, has recorded a podcast to provide a brief summary of the Discussion Paper. 

Call for submissions

We invite individuals and organisations to contribute to the law reform process by making submissions in response to the Discussion Paper.  It is helpful if comments address specific proposals and questions, however we also welcome feedback on background material and analysis.

The closing date for submissions is Monday, 30 June 2014.
We prefer to receive submissions via the online form on the ALRC website, but also accept submissions by post and email. Please send any pre-prepared submissions in Word or RTF format.

Easy English Discussion Paper

We have produced an Easy English version of the Discussion Paper. Easy English is more accessible for people who have difficulty reading and understanding written information.

We also have information about the law reform process, about making submissions, and our policy for communication with people with disability in both Easy English and Auslan.

Producing documents in Easy English is relatively new for the ALRC. We would love to hear any thoughts or feedback you have about our documents.
