4. Case studies


In this chapter we provide an overview of the five law reform case studies which are the empirical basis of this report. We describe each case, noting its stage in the law reform cycle, the genesis of its reform issues, public participation opportunities, and how stakeholders, particularly disadvantaged people, groups and organisations, were able to participate.

To do this for each case, we first outline the law reform issue and process, including what reform proposals were being considered and what law-making institutions were involved. We then identify the key features of interest in each case.

Following this discussion, we note how public participation opportunities vary across the five case studies, and identify some key themes which become the subject of further analysis in the report.
