Acquired brain injuries and the criminal justice system - Law Week 2020

You're invited to join the CIJ's Michael Haralambous and Victorian Disability Award winner Dorothy Armstrong for a discussion about the persistent challenges for people with ABI in the criminal justice system.

The CIJ's Enabling Justice and Supporting Justice projects have focused on finding innovative ways to address the over-representation of people with disability in Victoria's criminal justice system. 

You're invited to join the CIJ's Michael Haralambous and Victorian Disability Award winner Dorothy Armstrong for a discussion about the persistent challenges for people with ABI in the criminal justice system. 

This event will cover some of the work the CIJ has been doing to influence change in the criminal justice system as well previewing some of the Supporting Justice project's work, including:

SupportingJustice.net - a website developed by CIJ to help people find support in the criminal justice system. 

Our Voices podcast - a co-production of the Voices for Change self-advocacy group and the CIJ for the Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability.

You can watch a video that gives an overview of people who have ABI's and their experience with the justice system here.

This event is part of Law Week 2020.
