Phase Three

Concluding Assessment and Wider Public and Policy Engagement

This final phase of the project will provide a concluding assessment of potential principles underlying law reform in this area, and the viability, strengths and weaknesses of different law reform options.

We will develop one or two of the legal reform frameworks that appear most promising as draft bills, which will provide a focus for further policy discussion and expert and public engagement, at a range of events.
