The Judicial College of Victoria in partnership with the Australian Association of Women Judges invites you to a screening of Erika Cohn’s acclaimed documentary THE JUDGE, followed by light refreshments.

With unparalleled access to Palestine’s Shari’a courts, THE JUDGE presents a unique portrait of Palestine’s first female Shari'a judge Kholoud Al-Faqih, with rare insight into both Islamic law and gendered justice. In the process, it illuminates some universal areas of conflict in the domestic life – custody of children, divorce and family violence.
