Bullying, young people and the law symposium

Australia could become the first country to have unified laws to address all forms of bullying, including cyberbullying. However, according to the Chair of the National Centre Against Bullying (NCAB), The Honorable Alastair Nicholson AO QC RFD, “the legal duty of schools, teachers, parents and guardians, as well as others in positions of authority, is not currently clear”.

To address this issue, some of Australia’s pre-eminent legal experts, law enforcement and educational experts will meet in Melbourne on 18-19 July 2013 for a national symposium on Bullying, Young People and the Law. The symposium is a joint initiative between NCAB, the Australian Federal Police and the Sir Zelman Cowen Centre, which is part of the Victoria University.
