Patrick Shepherdson, Kirby Seminar- ‘Just Healing’

NSW Department of Attorney General and Justice, Assistant Director of Crime Prevention

Summary– “This lecture is about how a growing body of research recognises the relationship between past Australian government policy and practice and the drastic over-representation of Aboriginal people in the criminal justice system. Similarly, numerous studies informed by consultation with Aboriginal people identify the relationship between colonisation, dispossession and child removal policies and epidemic levels of violence, abuse and addiction. Given these reports all suggest a need for healing as a priority to address the grief and trauma that continues to lead Aboriginal people into the criminal justice system, recent evaluations of Indigenous sentencing courts were considered to explore whether they facilitate or support healing. Analysis of the evaluations of two Australian Indigenous sentencing courts suggests that while they have had no discernible impact on Aboriginal re-offending rates, they may in fact support community and individual healing in some regards. However it also suggests the programs’ potential will remain unrealised unless they look beyond the administration of justice and better acknowledge the relationship between Aboriginal social and emotional wellbeing and over-representation in the criminal justice system.”

Dr Diana Eades, Lecture on Linguistics in the Court Room

UNE Lecturer

Summary– “A fundamental aim of courtroom cross-examination is to elicit the agreement
of witnesses to damaging and/or conflicting propositions. This talk will discuss and
illustrate some of the linguistic mechanisms used in securing such agreement. But it can
be questionable for the law to construct such answers to pressured cross-examination as
“free and voluntary consent” to propositions expressed by lawyers. Analysis of an
Australian abduction case shows how the apparent agreeement of witnesses to crossexamination
propositions was layered with other problematic construals of consent. I
will question the ways in which the law ignores the contexts of interactions in its
construction of consent in individual mental terms – for example in cases of abduction
and rape – both in the courtroom and in its courtroom investigation of consent beyond
the courtroom.”
