​Access to digital assets upon death or incapacity

The Attorney General has 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.

Submissions for our consultation paper closed Friday 12 October 2018

Please note we have now closed both of our surveys for this review:

  • "What should happen to your social media when you die?", and
  • "Access to digital assets and records after death or incapacity".
We thank everyone who took the time to answer the surveys.
