The Queensland Law Reform Commission is looking at Consent and Mistake of Fact in sexual assault and rape cases in Queensland.
Women’s Legal Service Queensland will be making a submission and encourage individuals and sexual assault, DV and women’s services to participate in this process.
The Discussion Paper is very legalistic so we have made available a template for a submission that can be used by individuals and sexual assault agencies.
If you use the template, please ensure you:
- Read through the document to make sure you/your agency agrees and make any changes you think are appropriate.
- Check all of the yellow highlighted parts and address them (or delete if they are not relevant to you/your agency).
- Remove the yellow highlight formatting and watermark before submitting.
The consultation paper can be found here.
The template for a submission can be found here.
Submission need to be sent to [email protected] by 31 January 2020.
If you need an extension you can request one through the same email address.
