In the 2018–19 financial year, the ALRC’s work spanned five law reform inquiries. Two of these inquiries were completed in this period:

  • Inquiry into class action proceedings and third-party litigation funders (December 2018); and
  • Review of the family law system (March 2019).

In April 2019, the ALRC received Terms of Reference for two new inquiries into:

  • Corporate criminal responsibility; and
  • Religious exemptions from anti-discrimination legislation.

In addition to these ongoing inquiries, the ALRC commenced a consultative project to identify priorities for law reform.

Summaries of each of these Inquiries are provided below.
