Legal Tweaks

Every year, the Society asks members of the legal profession one simple question: if you could change any regulation in Australia, what would you change, and why? The product of that discussion is Legal Tweaks, the annual publication of the NSW Society of Labor Lawyers.

Legal Tweaks is proudly sponsored by Maurice Blackburn Lawyers, who carry on the inspiring legacy of Maurice McRae Blackburn, a champion lawyer and federal Labor MP. 

2018 Edition

Legal Tweaks asks a simple question: what legislation would you change, and why?

The annual publication of the NSW Society of Labor Lawyers asks practitioners, academics and students to contribute their ideas on how the law can be 'tweaked' for the benefit of the community. For last year's edition of Legal Tweaks click here.

If you would like to be profiled in this year's edition of Legal Tweaks please send us a response to the following questions:

- If you could change one particular section or regulation, what would it be? [30 words or less]
- Why does this regulation need to be changed? [175 words or less]
Please send your answers along with a high quality profile photo, your name, title, and area of practice. All contributions should be sent to the editors - Janai Tabbernor, Elise Delpiano and Blake Osmond - at by the deadline 20 September 2018.

Note that you do not need to be a member of the Australian Labor Party, or of the Society, to contribute to this publication (and we will not be suggesting that you are, should you choose to contribute). We welcome the contributions of all practitioners who wish to support the law reform work of the broader Labor movement.
