Other information

The Victorian Law Reform Commission (VLRC) is an independent government- funded organisation that develops, reviews and recommends reform of Victoria’s state laws. The VLRC includes the community in law reform and it seeks to make the law fairer, more up-to date and more accessible.

Nick Gadd, Communications Manager of the VLRC, will talk to us about some recent VLRC projects which have resulted in changes to Victorian law, including:

 guardianship (powers of attorney and people’s wishes for medical care after loss of capacity);
 legalising medical cannabis in exceptional circumstances;
 neighbourhood tree disputes; and
 changes to procedures in criminal law, eg how victims are treated and how juries are selected.
