Access to Justice: Law, Policing and Power
The Wheeler Centre
Three significant voices come together to discuss the social, political and legal barriers to justice in Australia, and to examine how structures of power can better serve the individuals and communities who depend on them. Hear from Walkley Award-winning journalist and author Dan Box (The Man Who Wasn’t There: A true story about lies, murder and the Territory), Gunai/Kurnai woman and award-winning author Veronica Gorrie (Black and Blue: A memoir of racism and resilience), and lawyer and human rights campaigner Isabelle Reinecke (Courting Power: Law, Democracy and the Public Interest in Australia). Together, they’ll draw on their experiences across law, media, policing and activism to reveal challenging and necessary truths about accessing justice in this country, and consider what changes are needed to ensure true justice for all. Sponsored by the Victorian Legal Services Board + Commissioner in support of improving access to justice for Victorians.
