Law Reform & Policy Work
Challenge potential and existing unfair laws and practices, to hopefully provide a better future.
The Illawarra Legal Centre’s policy and law reform work is focused on challenging potential and existing unfair laws and practices and making recommendations for improvements.
Law reform activities include projects that do the following four things:
- Highlight the impact of the law on our community, particularly on groups who experience social and economic disadvantage;
- Draw the community’s attention to any injustices within the law;
- Bring to the attention of government and other institutions any injustices within the law;
- Recommend changes to the law and the way it operates based on our experiences within our community
