Improving the Response of the Justice System to Sexual Offences: Guide to Our Issues Papers

1 The Victorian Law Reform Commission has been asked to make recommendations to improve the response of the justice system to sexual harm. We will review the laws in Victoria about rape, sexual assault and other adult and child sexual offences, and consider how those laws work in practice.

2 We want to hear your views. You can help us understand what works well now, and what can be improved.

3 We are interested in hearing from anyone who has professional or personal experience in this area, and anyone who has ideas for reform.

4 This paper gives an overview of the things we are interested in and how we plan to approach them. It will also guide you through our issues papers, and inform you how you can share your views.
