Lunch with Magistrate Louise Taylor

  • Parlour 16 Kendall Lane New Acton (map)

The Women Lawyers Association of the ACT and Proximity are pleased to present a lunch with Magistrate Louise Taylor at Parlour on Tuesday 9 July 2019.

This lunchtime event is occurring during NAIDOC week and provides an opportunity for attendees to hear from Magistrate Taylor. 

NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life. The week is a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support your local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.

Magistrate Louise Taylor is the eighth permanent Magistrate of the ACT Magistrates Court.

Prior to her appointment she was a criminal defence lawyer and the Deputy CEO of Legal Aid ACT. She has also worked as a prosecutor for both the Commonwealth and the ACT Director of Public Prosecutions.  

A Kamilaroi woman, she was the 2009 recipient of the ACT International Women’s Day Award. She was previously the long-time Chair of the Women’s Legal Centre ACT and the chair of the ACT Ministerial Advisory Council on Women. She is a current associate of the Indigenous Law Centre (UNSW) and a member of the Law Council’s Indigenous Legal Issues Committee.

Join us to hear about her reflections on becoming the ACT’s first Aboriginal judicial officer, her life and career.

This event is $20 for WLA ACT members, and $35 for non-members. Lunch, dessert and a drink will be provided. Please advise if you have any dietary requirements.
