Ready for recognition
Faculty advisor: Dr Dominique Dalla-Pozza
This project is concerned with constutional recognition for Australia's indigenious peoples.
The primary purpose of the Ready for Recognition program is to disseminate accurate, comprehensible legal information that is as free as possible from political ideology.
The program aims:
- To raise the level of public awareness of the current state of the Constitution and the range of proposals put forward to recognise Indigenous peoples in the Constitution.
- To provide correct and clear information about the referendum that is accessible to non-law audiences.
- To enhance civics education generally in relation to issues of law reform and social justice regarding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
- To provide law students with the opportunity to use their legal skills to benefit the community.
There are two stages to the GR4R project:
- Creation of Information Packs: students are working to develop a range of resources to provide accurate and comprehensive information about the referendum that will be easily accessible by non-law audiences.
- Community Education: students will use these resources to undertake community education in the local community and throughout the country. Students will be involved in delivering sessions to a range of groups, including schools and community groups.
