  • Full Description

    This much needed webinar by the Law Institute of Victoria’s Young Lawyers Community Issues Committee was conceived to highlight the under-representation of First Nations Peoples working in the legal profession.

    The lack of education around the many different cultures, traditions and language groups of First Nations Peoples is a product of history which needs to be challenged. Tokenistic allyship can be more harmful than indifference. 

    How can schools, universities, law firms, chambers and other institutions provide a safe inclusive environment that welcomes Indigenous Australians to the table with the respect their voices deserve? What does it mean to commit to authentic allyship and what needs to be done to decolonise the legal profession?

    Key Topics

    • The importance of increasing representation in the law
    • The gap in cultural awareness education for non-indigenous people
    • The importance of employing appropriate communication when advising Indigenous clients
    • Authentic allyship
  • Presenters
