The Commission advocates for human rights and equality by making submissions into a range of government and legal processes. Through our submissions, we provide specialist and independent views on human rights and equal opportunity issues.
Submissions into inquiries and reviews
Our policy submissions engage in government policy processes, inquiries and law reform activities to help ensure human rights and equality issues are considered. We make recommendations to improve human rights and equality outcomes in government activities and public life.
Submissions into court cases
The Commission also makes legal submissions to courts and tribunals. In this role, the Commission makes submissions to advocate for and explain the laws we work with. We do this to assist the court. We do not represent individual parties.
- Legal submissions under the Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities Act.
- Legal submissions under the Equal Opportunity Act.
