This Report discusses s 182(4) of the Criminal Code 1924 (Tas) and examines whether there is a need to reform the provision. Section 182(4) governs what is commonly known as ‘consensual assault’, which refers to circumstances where an assault has been committed but the victim has consented to the act in question. Due to the wide definition of assault, the situations where questions of consent can arise are quite varied, from mutually agreed brawls and sporting contests to some forms of sexual activity.
