The ICCLAP Project Team has worked with the Legal Education Review to produce a special focus edition on ICC in law. The collection provides a rich and diverse range of articles about the embedding of ICC in legal education and practice, providing resources to academics and legal service providers to support this goal. Contributors to the special edition include Marcelle Burns, Annette Gainsford, Kate Galloway, Alison Gerard, Ron Levy, Jennifer Nielsen, John Rawnsley, Melanie Schwartz, Nicole Watson, Asmi Wood and Simon Young.
The Indigenous Cultural Competency in Law: Deliberating Future Directions Workshop was held in September 2017 to bring together legal academics and key stakeholders to develop guiding principles and strategies to promote the embedding of ICC in law curricula. Presentations from leading Indigenous lawyers and legal academics were featured at the workshop to stimulate reflection and discussion. The Workshop Final Participant Report (2017) outlines critical success factors and barriers to incorporating ICC in curriculum, together with guiding principles and priorities for action to incorporate ICC in legal education.
