NT Anti-Discrimination Commission Darwin and Alice Springs Training 2020

We’re excited to announce two sets of Anti-Discrimination Commission training, face to face with our new trainer, Anika Freiling.

She will be kicking off with public training in Darwin in the week of 9 – 13 November and then venturing down to Alice Springs for the week of 7 – 11 December.

So if you’ve got Zoom-fatigue and you want to train live with a real person and an interactive course, register now! All training will comply with COVID19 physical distancing requirements, so in some cases numbers may be restricted by the size of the available room.

These two sets of training will include, for the first time in each city, our new Trans and Gender Diverse People module. So if you’re interested in providing great customer service, diversity and inclusion in your workplace, or just want to learn about changing language and being respectful, come along.

There’s a flyer for each city attached, with all the dates, venues and costs. There’s also a registration form, so you can nominate one or more of your people for any of the courses.

18th Biennial Bali Conference - Mid 2021 - Darwin

I Can't Believe it's Not Bali: Lockdowns and Lockups

"Criminal Lawyers Association of the Northern Territory (CLANT) is excited to announce that our 18th Biennial Bali Conference is going ahead… in Darwin, at a venue and on a date to be fixed, in mid-2021. We are now calling for papers, and particularly those that address our conference theme:

The 2021 CLANT conference coincides with both a global pandemic that has seen an immediate reimagining around the practice and procedures of criminal law both home and abroad; and importantly it also coincides with the 30th Anniversary of the final report of the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody. It took about 30 days for the pandemic to create real change in the processes surrounding the manner we practice criminal law, yet in 30 years we have seen little change or any meaningful improvement in access to justice for First Nations people. This conference looks to focus on what we can do to improve the criminal justice system, starting by looking in our own backyard.

If you have a paper in mind, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.."
