Seminar | 4:45 PM-6:00 PM
Get a first-hand account of the benefits of Aboriginal Community Justice Reports – and the challenges that go with their creation.
These reports, modelled on Canadian Gladue reports, provide judicial officers with a great deal of particularised and valuable insight into an Aboriginal litigant. However, they are costly and have special challenges – both in their preparation and use.
Judge Scott Johns, presiding judge of the County Koori Court, Charmain Anton, Statewide Community Justice Programs Leader, Victorian Aboriginal Legal Service, and Angie Wong, Public Defender, Victoria Legal Aid, will discuss both the advantages and challenges of these reports.
