Black Lives Matter

Melbourne Law School webinar " Black Lives Matter" presented on Thursday 16 July 2020.

Event synopsis

Do black lives matter in the Australian legal system?  

Black Lives Matter and #defundpolice protests are building momentum in Australia and internationally. Close to 30 years since the publication of the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody, many of the recommendations are yet to be implemented by state, territory and commonwealth government.

On Thursday 16 July, Melbourne Law School hosted a panel discussion featuring Larissa Behrendt, Amy McQuire, Alison Whittaker, George Newhouse, Eddie Cubillo and Amanda Porter.
