Episode 3: Community Law Reform
One of the Victorian Law Reform Commission’s functions is to examine, report and make recommendations to the Attorney-General on any matter the Commission considers of general community concern. These Community Law Reform projects, which are separate from those initiated by the Attorney-General, deal with relatively minor issues which, nevertheless, deeply affect the lives of Victorians. They exemplify the Commission’s commitment to community consultation and the idea that law reform best comes out of the day-to-day experience of ordinary people. Discussing the importance of our Community Law Reform program is program manager Natalie Lilford and Chair of the Commission, the Hon. Anthony North QC.
