Cultural Awareness in the Legal Profession

1.5 Units in Professional Skills/Practice Management 


Auxiliary Judge Sydney Tilmouth QC

Aunty Pat Waria-Read – Respected Elder of Nunga and ACCA Court

Mr Chris Larkin – Acting CEO of Aboriginal Legal Rights Movement


Brittany Armstrong - Aboriginal Legal Rights Movement 

Three well-respected speakers will share their wisdom and guidance on how we, as a legal profession, can ensure that we are doing our best to integrate Aboriginal Culture and Language into our practice.

This session aims to open up discussions about what is working, and what is not.  What can we do to ensure that our clients feel heard and understood? 

Broadly, we will hear about the idea behind the first Aboriginal Sentencing Conference in the District Court, and the benefits that both the Judiciary and the Aboriginal Community have seen as a result of these Conferences.
