Contract Law Review
On 22 March 2012 the (then) Attorney General announced a Review of Australian Contract Law.
Submissions were due by 20 July 2012. View my submission here.
The review, however, died a slow death and is unlikely to be revived.
Australian Consumer Law
On 1 January 2011 the Trade Practices Act 1974 was re-named the 'Competition and Consumer Act 2010' (CCA) and the Australian Consumer Law (ACL) came into full force. An overview of the (relatively) new consumer laws is available from the ACCC website.
