Reimagining the Relationship and Reshaping our Institutions presented by Tim Goodwin, Barrister, Victorian Bar. The lecture officially celebrates the launch of the Indigenous Law and Justice Hub at Melbourne Law School. Tim Goodwin speaks about how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders must think beyond how to participate in current institutions and structures in nation building projects, and instead build an intellectual base for reshaping those institutions and structures, and assert an innovative form of cultural leadership – one both traditional and modern – that remakes Australia’s political, legal, social and cultural landscape.
