The Shield: June 2022

General Manager Bev Jowle introduces this newsletter by thanking those who have participated in our Key Stakeholder Survey. Bev also discusses the recent visit to CCLSWA by Shadow Attorney General, Nick Goiran.

Principal Solicitor Roberta Grealish reports on welcome news of work starting to take place to regulate BNPL. Roberta also celebrates CCLSWA’s joint win of CFA’s Consumer Advocacy Award 2022. A great result from the advocacy work which convinced media, the public and politicians that rolling back responsible lending laws will cause more harm than good.

We continued Community Legal Education with visits to St Georges Anglican Grammar School and the Stay Smart program in Belmont.

We also report on credit and consumer issues in the news and provide information on opportunities that exist to show your support, including the Joint Statement on BNPL.
