Litigation Funding and Group Proceedings: Consultation Paper (pdf or Word)

In December 2016 the Attorney-General asked the Commission to report on a number of issues to ensure that litigants who seek to enforce their rights using the services of litigation funders and/or through group proceedings (commonly known as class actions) are not exposed to unfair risks or disproportionate cost burdens. The report is due by 31 March 2018.

This consultation paper describes the scope of the review and outlines the issues arising from the terms of reference. It contains information about class actions and litigation funding, the current regulatory framework, and proposals for reform. It also invited submissions in response to 28 questions. Submissions have now closed.
