Legal Literacy

ARDS has worked for many years alongside Aboriginal people involved in the justice system to help them better understand what is being communicated to them by police, lawyers and judges.

Legal Literacy

Community workshops

We deliver community workshops in local languages on laws of interest to the community, and the meaning of complex legal terms and processes so that Aboriginal people and communities are more empowered to understand their rights.

Our extensive experience discussing complex legal terms across languages and cultures, culminated in the recent publication of the plain English and Djambarrpuyŋu (Djambarrpuyngu) legal dictionary. We also have a range of radio programs on a range of legal topics, available online as well as broadcast on Yolŋu Radio.
