Suggest a Community Law Reform Project

We welcome suggestions from individuals, community groups, businesses and legal professionals. The project must involve changes to the law that are limited in scope yet of general benefit to the community. It must relate to Victorian law (not federal Australian law).

Our most recent community law reform projects are:

  • Inclusive Juries – enabling people who are blind or have low vision, are deaf or hard of hearing to serve on juries in Victoria
  • Neighbourhood Tree Disputes – clarifying the law in Victoria about trees on private land
  • Funeral and Burial Instructions – your rights to decide what happens at your own funeral.

Before you contact us please read the criteria for community law reform projects.

If you have an idea for a project, you can fill in the form below or you can email or send us a letter. We will consider whether your proposal matches the criteria. Please note that we only take on about one new community law reform project every two years.

The Commission cannot provide anyone with legal advice. If you need legal advice you should contact Victoria Legal Aid, your local community legal centre, or a law firm.
