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 2010 - 11.

Important areas for law reform this year include the law of bail and the NSW planning system, both of which are anticipated to be the subject of significant legislative reform. The Law Society also represents the interests of the profession in the ongoing process for development of a National e-Conveyancing System. Recent submissions cover areas as diverse as "anti bikie" legislation and the operation of the Fair Work Act..

The Law Society’s 2015 State Election Policy Platform - Balance.Rights.Justice. - invites political parties and candidates for election to make a commitment to constructive and consultative law reform.
