Emergence: Our Stories in the Next Decade will be the theme for a series of events and collaborations over the next 18 months culminating in the next National CLCs Conference in August 2021. You can read more about the theme here.
We want to make sure that you have access to vital professional development and networking opportunities that you need, while at the same time creating spaces where we can have the strategic discussions we need to have as a sector.
To kick things off, we invite you to a webinar series, co-created in collaboration with our colleagues and partners within the sector. Click on the webinar titles to see details and register.
Please join our virtual end of year celebration!
Simply zoom-in, pop-up and celebrate! We will take care of the break out rooms and the fun.
After a year filled with challenges and adaptation, it is good to be reminded that our sector is diverse, vibrant and wraps around communities.
Let’s bring in that energy and celebrate!
Date and time: Thursday 3 December 2020, 3:00-4:00pm
The Universal Periodic Review (UPR) is a peer-review dialogue undertaken by the United Nations (UN) Human Rights Council and all 192 Member States of the UN. Australia will present its third review on January 21, 2021 in Geneva.
This session is a great opportunity to come and listen to members of the UPR NGO Coalition as they discuss the key points made in the UPR NGO Coalition’s Report, endorsed by over 200 organisations in Australia. The Report was finalised through a collective effort at a time of unprecedented challenges for Australia: Australia had just emerged from the bushfire crisis in the summer of 2019/2020, bringing with it significant human rights implications; and now Australia and the world are facing the impacts of the global COVID-19 pandemic.
After our efforts to bring attention to major human rights violations happening in Australia through our Report, we will need to mobilise to ensure the recommendations made by the Human Rights Council are implemented. Please join our roundtable conversation!
Time and date: 10 December 2020, 12:30-2:00pm
2020 has been a year like no other and, at times, lawyers have been under attack for defending the rights of people, speaking truth to power.
This is a fantastic opportunity to join the Law Centres Network UK, online, in a pick-and-mix conference, to see out this extraordinary year and hope for a better 2021. There will be thought-provoking plenary sessions with speakers from around the world (including Australia!), feisty debates, experts providing updates, engaging workshops, networking opportunities, and even a chance to have some fun.
