Danny Sandor

Abstract

The Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission and the Australian Law Reform Commission are jointly conducting an inquiry into children and the legal process. Their recent draft recommendations paper 'A matter of priority: children and the legal process' discusses a wide range of subjects and systems concerning children, including education, consumer affairs, juvenile justice and family law proceedings. In relation to the inquiry, this article provides a brief discussion of proposals which would bring more care and protection matters for decision by the Family Court and more Family Law Act matters into state and territory children's courts.
