Human Rights Sub-Committee

The Human Rights Sub-Committee is part of the Administrative Law & Human Rights Section and reports to the Section's Executive Committee.

The Human Rights Committee is made up of members who have an interest in the advancement of human rights law in Victoria. The Committee hosts human rights themed presentations at the LIV, reviews and draws comment on relevant legislation where appropriate and makes submissions on human rights issues. The Committee also monitors developments under the Victorian Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities and charter of rights issues around Australia and the world.

Due to the richness of experience of the membership of the Committee, there are also ongoing opportunities for members to influence or assist with each other's human rights based professional work. The Committee seeks to liaise with other stakeholder organisations to formulate opportunities for co-presentations or symposia on human rights issues. It also initiates continuing legal education seminars, events and publications on human rights matters.

The Committee meets six times a year.

Chair: Jacinta Lewin
