From The Age, Melbourne, September 7, 2011

Victorian Attorney-General Robert Clark is preparing a proposal to urge other states and territories to emulate a recent criminal law reform, known as Brodie's Law. introducing jail terms of up to 10 years for serious bullying.

Hospitality worker Brodie Panlock, 19, was bullied at work before she killed herself in 2006. Since then, her parents, Rae and Damien Panlock, have led a push for tougher anti-bullying laws nationally

Mr Clark said he would like to submit a briefing on the merits of nationally consistent laws to the next meeting of state and federal attorneys-general in November.
