Nothing to write home about: Australia the defamation capital of the world


On 4 September 2019, Dr Matt Collins AM QC gave a speech to the National Press Club in Canberra about the law of defamation in Australia. In that speech, he advocated that the defamation laws were out-of-date and flawed.  He advocated that there should be a new cause of action: declaration of falsity and that the burden to prove falsity ought to reside with the plaintiff.

The speakers at this seminar will debate the contents of his speech and discuss where the laws of defamation are headed.
