University of New England - Conference on Rural Crime and the Law - 29-30 Nov - UNE School of Law

Dealing with crime and the law in rural communities: what works; what doesn’t; and what would you change? A conference on Rural Crime and the Law will be held on the 29th and 30th of November 2018 as the University of New England School of Law to examine the efficacy of current laws and policy relating to rural crime and the law to identify what works and what does not, where the gaps exist between the law and community expectations, and seek ways to improve policy and practice.

We have a great line-up of Australian and International speakers to address key topics concerning crime in rural areas, including:

• John Nicholson SC: Equal or Unequal Opportunities within the Criminal Justice System from a Rural and Regional Perspective

• Former Magistrate Chris Bone: The view from the bench

• Professor Diana Eades: Aboriginal English and the Law

The preliminary program is now available on the conference website: see
