The AIJA, in collaboration with the Law Society of New South Wales, is proud to present this conference to examine many of the thorny, complex issues associated with Indigenous youth justice and to promote meaningful discussion about ways to improve the situation.
We will be guided by the conference’s expert presenters, including elders, community leaders, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander members of the judiciary and legal profession, medical specialists and academics.
Indigenous justice is a strategic priority area for the AIJA and something I feel strongly about contributing to improvements. I’m confident that the AIJA Indigenous Youth Justice Conference – the first we have been able to hold in-person since 2019 – will inform meaningful conversations about potential ways to help reduce over-representation and improve Indigenous youth justice outcomes.
