INDIGENOUS CULTURAL COMPETENCY IN LAW WORKSHOP

About this Event

SOUTHERN CROSS UNIVERSITY - GOLD COAST CAMPUS

3 JULY 2019

10.00am - 4.30pm

The Indigenous Cultural Competency for Legal Academics Program (ICCLAP) aims to promote the embedding of Indigenous cultural competency (ICC) in legal education, with a view to building the capacity of law graduates to work effectively with Indigenous peoples in their future careers and also to create more inclusive learning environments for Indigenous law students. One of ICCLAP’s goals is to foster a community of practice to support the incorporation of ICC in law curricula. The workshop will provide an interactive and supportive space for participants to discuss the opportunities and challenges that embedding ICC in law presents, in conversation with leaders in the field. It will feature presentations from legal academics and practitioners to share their approaches and experiences on developing ICC in law. Confirmed presenters for the workshop include:

  • Marcelle Burns, ICCLAP Project Leader, Lecturer, Law School, University of New England
  • Eddie Cubillo, Senior Indigenous Fellow, Melbourne Law School, University of Melbourne
  • Annette Gainsford, Lecturer, Law and Justice Studies, Indigenous Academic Fellow; Associate Professor Alison Gerard, Director, Centre for Law and Justice; Kim Bailey, Discipline Coordinator (Law); Marcus Smith, Senior Lecturer and Course Director in Law, Centre for Law and Justice, Charles Sturt University.
  • Heron Loban, Senior Lecturer, Law School, Griffith University
  • Associate Professor Simon Young, School of Law and Justice, University of Southern Queensland
  • Professor Asmi Wood, ICCLAP Project Team, Director, National Centre for Indigenous Studies, Australian National University.
