Text: 'Yoorrook'
Wednesday 30th August 2023

Seminar | 4:45 PM-6:00 PM

Join Barrister Julie Buxton as she moderates a discussion with Yoorrook Commissioners after their second and third rounds of hearings.

Last year, counsel for the Commission discussed their work helping Aboriginal witnesses give testimony before this historic, first-of-its-kind truth-telling commission. Judicial officers learned about the importance of providing a culturally safe atmosphere and process and how to create both. This year, we will hear from the Commissioners themselves as they discuss their ongoing work following their second round of hearings held in 2023.
