Updating old laws

Another major project for Uni Adelaide law reformers

The South Australian government has commissioned the SA Law Reform Institute to up-date the state’s laws on abortion, now 40 years old. The Institute is based at the University of Adelaide law school.

State Attorney General Vicki Chapman says the review is about; “making abortion a regulated medical procedure under health law as opposed to a criminal law issue” and SALRI has started with community consultations, running to end May.

SALRI has a record of research based recommendations on updating laws in-line with the way we live now. Recent projects include, surrogacy, LGBTQI discrimination and family inheritance.
