Launching SupportingJustice.net

Join us for the launch our online resource SupportingJustice.net and for a panel discussion on disability in the criminal justice system.

Supportingjustice.net provides practical resources for legal and court professionals and for people with disability. It helps connect people with disability in the criminal justice system with support, and creates the opportunity for fairer outcomes.

We hope that you can join the Minister for Disability, Luke Donnellan and CIJ Director and former Attorney General Rob Hulls to launch this important new resource. The event will include a panel discussion on the current issues for people with disability in the criminal justice system.

The panel will include:

  • Magistrate Pauline Spencer, Coordinating Magistrate Court Support Services
  • Dorothy Armstrong, Self-Advocate and Victorian Disability Award winner
  • Stan Winford, Associate Director of the Centre for Innovative Justice
  • Emily Piggott, Advocacy Coordinator at VALID
