Abstract from Volume 9 (2000)

The Property (Relationships) Legislation Amendment Act 1999 (NSW) versus the De Facto Relationships Amendment Bill 1998 (NSW)

Jenni Millbank

Jenni Millbank analyses the differences between the NSW same sex relationship recognition legislation passed by Parliament and the proposed legislation discussed in her article at (1999) 8 AG&LLJ 1. While expressing disappointment that the new law is significantly narrower than that originally proposed, she describes the new law as "a landmark step". The scope of coverage places NSW ahead of the rest of Australia, the UK, the USA and most Canadian jurisdictions in same sex relationship recognition.
