The Law Council presents a panel discussion with eminent advocates and academics, Dr Hannah McGlade, Ms Cheryl Axleby, Dr Tracey McIntosh and Mr Tony McAvoy SC, moderated by Law Council President, Ms Pauline Wright.
In 2018, the Australian Law Reform Commission released its Pathways to Justice report, which examined the disproportionate rate of incarceration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and made 35 recommendations in relation to issues including sentencing, bail, justice reinvestment, police accountability, and specific cohorts such as women. The Law Council has called publicly on government to respond to the report.
In this webinar, legal and policy experts discuss the report's recommendations, priorities for implementation, and whether we already have a roadmap to meet the justice targets in the new National Agreement on Closing the Gap.
This is the second in a series of Law Council events aimed at bringing attention to the overincarceration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across Australia.
