‚ÄčIndigenous Cultural Competency in Law: Deliberating Future Directions Workshop

September 11-12, Melbourne

The Indigenous Cultural Competency for Legal Academics Program (ICCLAP) is hosting a two day workshop to explore the potential for incorporating ICC in legal education. The workshop will bring First Nations lawyers and scholars together with legal academics, lawyers, and representative bodies in a series of lively discussions on strategies and approaches to develop ICC through law curricula.

The workshop will be discussing guiding principles for the embedding of ICC in legal education, identifying knowledge gaps and resources to support the inclusion of ICC and establish networks with other people engaged in this work. Our vision is to foster a community of legal academics to support the embedding of ICC in Australian legal education.

The workshop will be guided by a deliberative democracy process, facilitated by two leading experts in this field. This participatory approach aims to build relationships and generate consensus through constructive dialogue on how to achieve the ICCLAP goals.
