Legal Aid News - December 2021

7 Dec 2021

The December edition of Legal Aid News is out now.

In the final Legal Aid news for 2021 we celebrate the permanent appointment of Alex Colquhoun to the role of Director Family Law, a continuation of her long career at Australia’s largest family and care and protection practice. We highlight the Walama List pilot, which offers a more culturally-specific and community-based approach to sentencing for Aboriginal offenders, as well as reforms to consent law and compensation for child abuse survivors. Panel lawyers can read up on COVID-19 vaccination requirements, and everyone can put in their pre-orders for the hugely popular 2022 Legal Topics for Older People Diary.
