Description

With no statutory or common law tort for invasion of privacy in Australia, this session will explore current privacy protections and causes of action in legislation and common law.

It will also discuss law reform proposals to improve redress, such as a statutory tort and strengthened protections under existing privacy legislation, as most recently recommended by the ACCC's Digital Platforms Report.

Our panel will also highlight the growing tension between rapidly evolving technology and current notions of privacy.

The Honourable Justice Melinda Richards
