Comments on the exposure draft of the Crimes (Consent) Amendment Bill 2021
The ACT Law Society welcomes the opportunity to comment on the exposure draft of the Crimes (Consent) Amendment Bill 2021. We appreciate the extension of time provided to respond after belatedly becoming aware of the consultation, noting there was an error in the email address that your office attempted to use to notify the Society about this Bill. While we have sought responses from our specialist committees within the one-week timeframe we had to consider and respond, we were disappointed not to have more time to undertake a more thorough consultative approach with our legal practitioner members on such an important issue.
