Abstract

This article analyses the Draft Proposals that emerged from the New South Wales Law Reform Commission (NSWLRC) Review of Consent in Relation to Sexual Offences. The NSWLRC Review was prompted in significant part by the high-profile case of R v Lazarus. We argue that the Draft Proposals do not adequately respond to the legal failures highlighted by Lazarus. In this sense, they represent a missed opportunity for substantive law reform.
