2017 Conference

CALRAs arranges international conferences on law reform, in alternate years and in partnership with the national LRA in the jurisdiction. There have been six, from 2005 to 2017.

The most recent CALRAs Conference was held in Melbourne, Australia. Entitled "Effective Law Reform Sharing Together across the World", the Conference was arranged with the kind assistance of the Victorian Law Reform Commission (VLRC).

The Conference topics included: key characteristics of good law reform, law reform in the United States of America, victims of crime, relations between Law Reform Agencies and the Executive and the Legislature, harmonisation of laws in the United States of America, and a written guide to good practice in law reform.

Speakers included:-
  • Emeritus Professor Rosalind Croucher, AM, President of the Australian Law Reform Commission
  • Hon Philip Cummins, AM, Chair of the Victorian Law Reform Commission, Australia
  • Kathleen Cunningham, Executor Director, British Columbia Law Institute, Canada
  • Her Honour Judge Felicity Hampel, County Court of Victoria, Australia
