ARDS teaming up with NAAJA for Targeted Community Legal Education thanks to NT Law Society
ARDS and NAAJA are very happy to be funded by the NT Law Society’s Public Purposes Trust to run a pilot project at Ramangiṉiŋ.
ARDS and NAAJA staff will work together to conduct targeted Community Legal Education before and after court for Ramangiṉiŋ’s April and June sittings. Before court, we will conduct focused workshops about the Balanda legal process, roles and responsibilities as well as unpacking some of the commonly misunderstood legal terms and concepts. After court, we will unpack terminology and legal concepts that relate to outcomes and conditions that the court has imposed on people.
We will conduct all this in Plain English and Yolŋu matha with the help of the “Dhuwal Wäyukpuy Rom Dhäruk Mala ga Mayali’” (Legal Dictionary: English – Yolŋu Matha), and Plain English Legal Dictionary. These resources are a result of previous collaboration between ARDS and NAAJA with funding again from the NT Law Society’s Public Purposes Trust.
We are very excited to continue and extend these relationships use these resource in a meaningful way and look forward to working between worlds in the law and justice space.
