After more than 20 years of development, the legislative framework for corporations and financial services legislation is no longer fit for purpose. So, what should reform look like?

Join the ALRC for a conversational and interactive analysis of the Final Report in the corporations and financial services legislation Inquiry. The Final Report is the culmination of three years examining the causes and costs of legislative complexity, and contains the ALRC’s 58 recommendations for reform.

Key questions for discussion include:

  • why legislative complexity matters;
  • how a reformed legislative framework for financial services legislation would reduce complexity; and
  • how implementing the ALRC’s reforms would reduce the costs of complexity.

Participants are invited to submit questions for the ALRC panelists both before and during the webinar.
