This week on The Lawyers Weekly Show we take a look at the rising use of drones for commercial and retail purposes and the laws and regulations that accompany them. Our host, Lawyers Weekly journalist Lara Bullock, is joined by Piper Alderman partner James Lawrence who is somewhat of a drone law expert. Mr Lawrence shed light on the incredible growth rate of drone usage and the potential growth yet to come. With this rise there are two tangible trends; a reduction of red tape with new Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) regulations coming in to effect in 29 September, contrasted by the need for more privacy laws stemming from recommendations from the Australian Law Reform Commission (ALRC). The space is changing and it’s something that lawyers in many practice areas need to be across.
