Australian Academy of Law Essay Prize


Entries for the AAL Annual Essay Prize 2023 will close on 31 August 2023.

The essay topic is:

Mass torts and class actions: can the growth in this kind of private litigation in Australia and elsewhere be described as an evolutionary form of “privatised regulation”, gap-filling where the state and its regulators have not fully or properly controlled or deterred behaviours, or protected and compensated affected persons? To what extent is it successful in that regard? Should it be encouraged? Why or why not? Give examples.
