Class Actions Forum: Capital, Regulation and the Public Interest

Thursday, 15 July 2021

The Class Actions Committee from the Federal Litigation and Dispute Resolution Section of the Law Council of Australia in conjunction with the Australian Academy of Law (AAL) is pleased to announce it will be hosting the Class Actions Forum to be held in the Federal Court in Sydney on the topic of Class Actions: Capital, Regulation and the Public Interest

Class Actions have been the subject of recent attention by Parliaments, the executive, law reform commissions and the courts, including two recent decisions of the High Court. Much of this attention has focused on the way Class Actions are funded, and the consequences of funding being available. 

Significant differences of view may be emerging as to how the public interest is best advanced when it comes to regulating class actions themselves, and the means by which the capital necessary to conduct them is made available. This seminar aims to take a deeper look at these issues.

This event will be held in person and also streamed online.
