Neurodiversity and the Legal System : Towards Equality for All

May 19 @ 4:00 am May 20 @ 2:00 pm

The objective of this conference is to facilitate an exchange of cutting edge academic discourse, policy and practice initiatives with lived experience at the core. The conference will include all areas of the criminal justice system across international jurisdictions: police, practice in court and the judiciary, probation, prison, parole and forensic mental health services. Topics will be considered through a lens of lived experience, policy, academic learnings and practice. The aim is that all sectors will have the opportunity to share lived experience, learnings and contemporary practice relating to neurodiversity as they pertain to their research field, organisation and/or jurisdiction. It is hoped that this will allow cross fertilisation of best practice models across jurisdictions.
