ABSTRACT
The article discusses a proposal to enact the Clare Law in Great Britain which will allow women to access police records of men they are dating. It cites the tragic murder of British woman Clare Wood by George Appleton, who was later found to have a history of violence against women he dated. Australian law enforcers believe that while Clare's Law would be a welcome concept to protect women, it should also be balanced with an individual's right to privacy of information.
