Mandatory Reading, Lawyers and Life in the Northern Territory

2018, Law Society NT

“This tour de force lays bare the ambitions, achievements and failures of the men and women whose shadows were cast across the world of solicitors, barristers and judges over the last century. Eminently readable by anyone curious about the struggles of humanity to overcome wars, cyclones and rapid social change, the authors weave into the Territory’s political, social, legal and economic history, the contribution these men and women made towards turning a lethargic and depressed community into a modern state.” - The Honourable Dean Mildren AM RFD QC

Indigenous Protocols for Lawyers Second Edition

2015 Law Society NT

Many lawyers in the NT act for and provide advice to Aboriginal people. For many lawyers, especially those who do not identify themselves as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, those who do not have Indigenous heritage and those who are new to the Territory, communicating with Indigenous clients poses some special challenges.

The first edition of Indigenous protocols for lawyers was introduced more than 10 years ago and it continues to be a relevant and important publication and a key aid in legal practice. With the Society’s consent, the Law Society of South Australia recently adapted the first edition to provide guidance for lawyers practicing in South Australia.

The second edition provides a set of six protocols, some related discussion and tips for a legal practice that is culturally attuned to the special requirements of communicating with and representing Indigenous people. It is intended to be a guide for lawyers providing services to Indigenous people in the Northern Territory whose first language is an Australian Indigenous language. However, these protocols will be of assistance to lawyers across the country.
