As the Australian Law Reform Commission (ALRC) moves forward with its current inquiry into the simplification of corporations and financial services legislation, it is turning its attention to regulatory design and the hierarchy of laws.
Relevant questions include:
- How should the statutory and regulatory framework be designed to support complex areas such as financial services?
- Where should the law be located to achieve coherence and navigability?
- If the law needs detail to function, whose job should it be to provide it?
Join the ALRC as it hosts a panel of international experts from Hong Kong, New Zealand, Singapore, and the UK to discuss these and related issues.

The ALRC is committed to listening to the views of stakeholders. In November last year, submissions were invited in response to 16 proposals and 8 questions raised in the ALRC’s Financial Services Legislation Interim Report A.
Submissions, together with further consultations, surveys, workshops, and seminars, will form part of the evidence base for subsequent Interim Reports and the Final Report.
Further submissions will be invited following the release of Interim Report B later this year.
