The term tort law has become a hot topic in Australia after a number of people, including lawyers, have criticised the way the laws are written and enforced.
The law is also being debated around the world and the current Government has already announced it will bring in a bill that will make it harder to sue someone.
It is understood the new law will bring the law into line with international standards and will also make it easier to file tort claims in Australia.
Australian law states that there are three types of damages: punitive damages, non-punitive damages and compensatory damages.
The laws in Australia are currently based on the US Tort Reform Act.
But in 2015, the Federal Government announced it was scrapping the US Tarrant and District Courts tort law.
Instead, the Australian Government was moving to a new tort law, one which will be based on International Standard for Tort Law.
Currently, the International Standard is the Tort Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC).
However, this was not set out in the new Australian Tort Law, which was introduced last month.
This is due to the Australian government’s decision to adopt the ICC Tort Statutes instead of the US-based Tarrance and District Court tort law in order to meet international standards.
“The international standard is the ICC tort law which will supersede the Australian Tort law in the event of a change in Australian law,” a spokesperson for the Australian Federal Police said.
However the spokesperson said there would be a transition period to allow the new Tort Law to be tested against international standards in the meantime.
ABC News is not making any statements about the future of the Australian tort law legislation, as this is an ongoing investigation.
