Submissions on ALRC’s Privacy inquiry close 11 November

Time is almost out to submit submissions on the Australian Law Reform Commission’s Issues Paper 43 (IP 43) Serious Invasions of Privacy in the Digital Era. CCH’s Torts Law Consultant, Professor Barbara McDonald, was appointed to head up the Australian Law Reform Commission’s (ALRC) inquiry in July 2013.

The IP 43, delivered in October 2013, outlines background information and highlights issues identified by the ALRC as relevant to the Terms of Reference released by the Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus QC MP, in June 2013.

The ALRC’s inquiry addressed 28 questions that dealt not only with the creation of a stand alone cause of action for breach of privacy but the availability of existing laws to address the challenges posed by privacy issues in the digital era. The inquiry will address both the prevention and remedies for serious invasions of privacy.

The ALRC seeks submissions from a broad cross-section of the community and an online submission form is available here.

IP 43 itself can be read by following the link provided. The ALRC will provide its final report to the Attorney-General by June 2014.
