Law Council calls on COAG leaders to seize historic opportunity to reduce family violence

1 April 2016

The Law Council of Australia is calling upon the Council of Australian Governments to seize the opportunity for intergovernmental action following the release of the Victorian Royal Commission Report into Family Violence.

Law Council of Australia President Stuart Clark AM said a number of the report’s recommendations could be seized on by COAG leaders, including:

“The nation's leaders have been presented with a golden opportunity to stand on the shoulders of the Victorian Royal Commission and act decisively to reduce family violence,” Mr Clark said.

“The recommendations we know will have a real effect have been laid out. We now need genuine national leadership to get them implemented.”
