Interact with an expert panel, discussing whether the Australian Law Reform Commission should inquire into potential law reform regarding freedom of the press.
In 2019, the ALRC undertook research and broad public consultation, asking: What are the most pressing areas for law reform in Australia today? In December, the ALRC published its report, “The Future of Law Reform: A Suggested Program of Work 2020-25”. This webinar is part of a series to gain feedback and further input on some of the ALRC’s suggested future law reform inquiry topics.
Join an expert panel comprising thought leaders on press freedom and national security addressing questions such as: Should an inquiry into press freedom be a priority? What are the particular problems that any future law reform inquiry should seek to solve? What benefits might be expected from any future reform?
