A Darwinese criminal law conference
darwin convention centre
10 - 14 August 2021
Mourning the loss of my dear friend, "big sister" and business partner. Having organised the previous five CLANT conferences together, Lyn, you are here with me in spirit for the18th conference in 2021!
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.
