2012 Kirby Cup

The Kirby Cup Law Reform Competition is a unique opportunity for law students to consider the role of law reform and law reform agencies in Australia. To enter, law students must provide a written paper (no more than 4000 words) on a given topic of law reform. This year’s topic is clearly aligned with the ALRC’s current work:

Suggest one or more new statutory exceptions for the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth), consistent with Australia’s international legal obligations, and explain why it/they should be introduced. Alternatively, explain why further exceptions should not be introduced.

For the 2012 competition, written papers are due to the ALRC by Friday 24 August 2012. See Guidelines for the competition >>
