The ACT Law Reform Advisory Council (LRAC) was established in 2009 as a collaboration between the ACT Government and the ANU College of Law. LRAC’s Terms of Reference specify that its role is to ‘provide expert advice and recommendations to the Attorney-General on terms of reference dealing with law reform matters referred to it by the Attorney-General’.
Drawing on the extensive expertise of the academic staff of the ANU College of Law, LRAC responds to requests from the ACT Attorney-General to advise on significant legal policy issues. It does not have the power to instigate its own enquiries. Previous enquiries have been conducted in relation to the legal recognition of sex and gender diversity, and the provision of suspended sentences by the ACT courts. The Council is currently enquiring into possible modifications to the Discrimination Act 1991.
