​Access to digital assets and records upon death or incapacity

The Attorney General asked us to review and report on the laws that affect access to a NSW person's digital assets and digital records after they die or become incapacitated.

Our final report was tabled in Parliament on 5 March 2020.

We have also published the findings of our two online surveys:

  • one conducted among members of the public ("What should happen to your social media when you die?"), and
  • one conducted among NSW legal practitioners ("Access to Digital Assets and Records after Death or Incapacity").
