Unfitness to plead laws in Australia have been widely recognised as requiring reform and modernisation. The Unfitness to Plead Project was funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services as part of the National Disability Research and Development Scheme, from 2015 to 2017. The Project sought to develop practical and legal options to address the problem of people with cognitive disabilities being found unfit to plead and subject to indefinite detention.

On behalf of the research team, we would like to invite you to the launch of the project Report.

The Report will be launched by Michael Black AC QC, former Chief Justice of the Federal Court of Australia and Member, Advisory Board, Melbourne Social Equity Institute, with special guest, Mr Marlon Noble.
