Professor Metallic’s research seeks to harness the law to advance the well-being of Indigenous peoples.  Her research into problems in the delivery of Indigenous services is ground-breaking and she is a leading expert in this field.  Her presentation will focus on how change towards improved Nation to Nation relations is possible under the current constitutional framework and with governments taking a more active role in collaboration with Indigenous groups.  An open question and discussion period will follow the presentation.

Proof of vaccination and masks required.

Seating limited.  Register on Eventbrite on to attend in person.
