The Indigenous Cultural Competency for Legal Academics Program (ICCLAP) aims to promote the embedding of Indigenous cultural competency (ICC) in legal education, with a view to building the capacity of law graduates to work effectively with Indigenous peoples in their future careers and also to create more inclusive learning environments for Indigenous law students. One of ICCLAP’s goals is to foster a community of practice to support the incorporation of ICC in law curricula. This workshop is being held in conjunction with the Australasian Law Academics Association 2019 Conference, and will provide an interactive and supportive space for participants to discuss the opportunities and challenges that embedding ICC in law presents, in conversation with leaders in the field.
The workshop features presentations from legal academics and practitioners to share their approaches and experiences on developing ICC in law. Speakers for the workshop include:
