Since the beginning of the year, our Committee has been hard at work ensuring that legal issues are at the forefront of Federal and State Labor's policy agenda.
Recently at the Special Platform Conference of the Australian Labor Party we were successful in amending the National Platform in a number of areas including in criminal procedure, child protection and class actions. A summary of these changes can be found online here.
We have also submitted a range of policies to be considered at the NSW State Labor Conference, now scheduled for October 2021. A summary of these proposals can be found online here.
The Committee thanks Committee member Kirk McKenzie for his ongoing work on these policies.
