Centre Co-Director Luke McNamara is a Chief Investigator on a new project funded by an ARC Discovery Project grant (DP200100101): Intoxication Evidence in Rape Trials: A Double-Edged Sword? Led by Associate Professor Julia Quilter (School of Law, University of Wollongong) this project will investigate the operation of Australian statutory reforms designed to shape the operation and impact of evidence of complainant and/or defendant intoxication in sexual assault trials. The project is timely: sexual assault law reform is currently on the agenda of the NSW Law Reform Commission, the Queensland Law Reform Commission and the Victorian Law Reform Commission. The project team has recently released a call for expressions of interest for a PhD candidate to join the project. Details here.
