Law and You Forum to explore the track to Treaty in Victoria

Join us online for the track to Treaty in Victoria - structures, process and progress.

Monday, September 26, 2022

This year, Victoria Law Foundation (VLF) will bring together a panel of experts to explore the process and progress of reconciliation in Victoria for the annual Law and You Forum.

With the recent passing of Victorian legislation to establish an Indigenous Treaty Authority, VLF Executive Director Lynne Haultain will moderate a panel looking at the different elements of the pathway to Victorian treaty.

During The track to Treaty in Victoria - structures, process and progress, panelists will explain the recent legislation and the impact of the proposed structures behind the treaty process and discuss the wider path to reconciliation.

The live, online forum, will feature Elly Patira from the Department of Premier and Cabinet, Eddie Cubillo from University of Melbourne, Dr Aunty Carolyn Briggs AM from the First Peoples’ Assembly of Victoria and Sue-Anne Hunter from the Yoorrook Justice Commission.

Lynne Haultain, Executive Director at Victoria Law Foundation said “we are thrilled to look behind the process, structures and framework of the treaty process."

Beyond the legislation, these expert panelists will help us to understand the role of the First Peoples’ Assembly, the interaction between Treaty and truth-telling including the Yoorrook Justice Commission and how the Victorian Treaty pathway compares with what is happening in other parts of the world.

The free event is open to all members of the public and will be held online on Tuesday 11 October.
