Prominent disability rights lawyer, Natalie Wade explores the DRC's recommendations to introduce a new Disability Rights Act and National Disability Commission.

The DRC has recommended that a Disability Rights Act be introduced to translate the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) into enforceable Australian law. This could also involve a new National Disability Commission, which would have power to address non-compliance with the Act.

In this one hour webinar, prominent disability rights lawyer, Natalie Wade will bring you up to speed on:

  • The proposed Disability Rights Act and what it aims to achieve 

  • Who would need to comply under the new proposals 

  • The role of the proposed National Disability Commission

  • What all this could look like in practice

  • And of course, what you can do to prepare
