Australian Law Reform Commission Uses Blogs To Consult Public

This is a follow-up to the Library Boy post of November 14, 2010 entitled Australian Law Reform Commission Final Report on Family Violence.

That post referred to a major study by the Australian Law Reform Commission (ALRC) that looked at family/domestic violence and child protection laws at the Commonwealth, State and Territory levels.

It appears that the Commission will launch a "follow-on" inquiry (I suppose that means a follow up inquiry in Aussiespeak) "focusing on family violence under Commonwealth law, relevant—or potentially relevant—to a range of federal legislative regimes including, for example, those regulating workplace relations, immigration, social security and child support."

I like the way the ALRC communicates with the public, via e-newsletters and blogs. This new inquiry already has a blog where the public can take part in consultations.

The New Zealand Law Commission is also quite innovative in its public outreach, having created an online public consultation site called TalkLaw.
