Summary In April 2009, the Standing Committee of Attorneys-General called for the Australian Law Reform Commission, working jointly with the NSW Law Reform Commission, to investigate the interpretation and application of laws relating to family violence, sexual assault, and child protection across the various states and territories in Australia. The final report of the Commission's findings was released in October 2010. This report describes the background of the Inquiry and the framework for reform, and presents the final 187 recommendations put forward in the final report in the areas of jurisdiction, criminal law, police, bail, protection orders, sentencing, homicide defences, evidence, child protection, family dispute resolution, confidentiality, sexual assault, reporting and pre-trial processes in sexual offences, information sharing, integration, and specialisation
