In a submission to the Legislative Assembly Legal and Social Issues Committee, the Law Institute of Victoria (LIV) has made recommendations to alter anti-vilification law in Victoria.

Written in consultation with the LIV's Human Rights committee and the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission (VEOHRC), the submission generally supports the Racial and Religious Tolerance Bill and makes 13 recommendations to alter anti-vilification law in Victoria. 

Among the recommendations, the LIV supports the lowering of the threshold of the incitement test, the introduction of additional protected characterisics, such as gender and sex charactertistics, and the bringing of all Victorian anti-vilificaiton legislation under the Equal Opportunity Act 2010 (Vic).
