It has been nearly four years since the Uluru Statement from the Heart was delivered to the Australian people. Although a relatively short document, the Statement invites Australians to “walk with us in a movement of the Australian people for a better future” and calls for a framework of structural reform not least of which is the constitutional enshrinement of a First Nations’ Voice to Parliament. The statement represents a landmark consensus position on what First Nations peoples see as a a clear and practical path forward towards an Australia in which First Nations have greater say and authority over the laws that impact them and their rights.

The Law Institute of Victoria is proud to host professor Megan Davis, a Cobble Cobble woman from Queensland and the leading constitutional lawyer working on Indigenous constitutional reform since 2011.

Designed in consultation with the LIV’s Reconciliation and Advancement Committee, in this video professor Davis provides:

  • Insights from her work in the area of constitutional reform over the last 10 years, the process which led to historic consensus achieved in the Uluru Statement from the Heart and the legal work which has occurred since it was issued particularly in relation to a Voice to Parliament.
  • Guidance on how lawyers can contribute to the movement towards constitutional enshrinement of a Voice to Parliament so that First Nations people can finally have a voice on issues that directly affect them and their community.
