The Law Institute of Victoria (LIV) has prepared a submission to the United Nations Committee regarding Australia's progress in implementing the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The submission focuses on the recommendation that Australia withdraw its reservation to article 37(c) of the CRC, the over-representation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in the criminal justice system, child protection, particularly the criminalisation of children in out-of-home care, problematic bail laws and practices, mandatory sentencing laws, and problematic policing practices with respect to certain groups of young people and the taking of DNA samples.
