From 24 to 27 August 2015, CCLSWA’s principal solicitor, Faith Cheok; and solicitors, Curtis Ward and Gemma Mitchell, attended the National Association of Community Legal Centres (NACLC) conference in Melbourne.
Our solicitors networked with delegates from all over the country and engaged with a variety of presenters who spoke on the topic of “Unless…. Storytelling in CLC’s work. Reasons, Roles and Risks”.
Keynote speakers included Australian of the Year, Rosie Batty; the Attorney-General, Senator the Hon George Brandis QC; the Human Rights Commissioner, Tim Wilson; the Shadow Attorney-General, the Hon Mark Dreyfus QC MP; and Rachel Ball, Emily Howie, and Hugh de Kretser all from the Human Rights Law Centre.
Attendees were encouraged to participate in the conference via Twitter using the hashtag #NACLC15.
CCLSWA’s solicitors returned to the office with new connections, ideas, and greater knowledge of the legal issues faced by the most disadvantaged and vulnerable members of our community on a national level.
