Sir Kenneth Bailey Memorial Lecture 2023
‘Breaking Laws and Making Laws on Indigenous Peoples: From the National to the International’
Presented by Mr. Les Malezer
In this public lecture, Mr. Malezer will draw on his extensive experience working in local, national, and international organisations on the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to consider the contemporary challenges to changing laws and doctrines regarding the status of Indigenous peoples in Australia. He will recount his personal perspectives on the way in which international processes on the rights of Indigenous peoples can supplement the national processes to enhance the goals of justice and equality for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
We hope you can join us for this opportunity to hear Mr. Les Malezer speak. The lecture will start at 6.00 pm and is hosted by Melbourne Law School and the Melbourne Journal of International Law.
