The Honourable Justice Doyle, Supreme Court of South Australia

About the Session:
Words are defamatory when they convey an imputation about a person that lowers the person’s reputation in the eyes of reasonable members of the community, or causes the person to be ridiculed, avoided or despised by members of the general public. Defamation laws have developed over several centuries to provide recourse for people whose reputation is or is likely to be harmed by publication of information about them. This session will discuss developments in the Australian Defamation Laws since the amendments in 2006.
