DOING JUSTICE DIFFERENTLY (April Lunch)
Innovative law reform has long been the passion of this month’s speaker. ROB HULLS has devoted much of his career to reform of the justice system. As a member of federal and state governments, and in particular as Victorian Attorney General and Deputy Premier, he was responsible for setting the legal framework. His experience as a solicitor in Victoria’s Legal Aid service was practical grounding in the difficulties faced by many in navigating the law. Few are better placed to lead a discussion of the challenges involved in reforming Victoria’s legal system.
Rob Hulls was a member of the Victorian government from 1996 to 2012. He was Deputy Premier, Attorney General and held several other portfolios. Rob is currently Director of the Centre for Innovative Justice at RMIT University. He has long been a leader in innovative justice, especially for young people and indigenous communities.
