The South Australian Law Reform Institute (‘the Institute’) is pleased to accept a new reference from the Attorney-General, The Hon. John Rau, MP.
The reference was announced as part of His Excellency the Honourable Hieu Van Le AO’s speech at the opening of Parliament on Tuesday 10 February 2015. The Governor stated that:
“My Government will invite the South Australian Law Reform Institute to review legislative or regulatory discrimination against individuals and families on the grounds of sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or intersex status.”
The reference will commence with an audit of South Australian legislation to identify discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or intersex status.
Further details as to the report and consultation process will be released in due course, however, at this early stage the Institute invites stakeholders and interested parties to register their interest in participating in the consultation process by emailing the Institute at email@example.com.
