Policy Submissions & Projects
Through our network of expert policy committees, the Law Society draws on the collective knowledge and experience of members to promote public debate on law reform and legal policy issues. The Law Society is engaged in a constant process of consultation with government and made over 100 legal policy submissions in 2014 - 15.
Important areas for law reform and advocacy this year include criminal justice and injury compensation, particularly as the full impact of the 2012 workers compensation reforms is revealed. The Law Society also represents the interests of the profession in the development of a National e-Conveyancing System. Recent submissions cover areas as diverse as retail leasing arrangements, migration legislation and motor accidents insurance.
The Law Society’s 2015 State Election Policy Platform – Balance.Rights.Justice. – invited political parties and candidates for election to make a commitment to constructive and consultative law reform. The Law Society thanks the parties and Independents for responding and hopes that the Policy Platform and responses will facilitate constructive debate in the lead up to the Election and beyond..
