Twenty-five years after the introduction of Australia’s federal class action regime, class action law remains a significant element of the country’s litigation landscape. Enhancements to Australia’s class action jurisprudence in 2017 included developments in the class closure process, the coordination of competing class actions, and a newly implemented common fund approach to setting litigation funder’s fees.

This Jones Day White Paper reviews these and other developments and lists the class actions matters that were commenced and resolved in 2017.

Please see full White Paper below for more information.
