As part of Law Week, the Law Society’s Young Lawyers Committee is celebrating the important work of Aboriginal legal centres and is raising awareness about how the legal profession, students and members of the public can assist.

The event will centre on a screening of Connection to Country, a beautifully shot documentary directed by Tyson Mowarin. It explores the relationship between Indigenous people and their land and charts the struggles to have their unique cultural heritage recognised, conserved and celebrated.

“A beautifully shot documentary, it’s clear to see that one of the strongest inspirations is [Mowarin’s] desire to pass on culture and country that is intact for not only his people but his young daughter and generations after her.” Emily Nicol, SBS

Free to attend, enjoy the movie, meet like-minded people, and taste canapes and refreshments inspired by the unique flavours of Aboriginal cuisine.

Join us as we celebrate Aboriginal culture and provide a spotlight on the important work Aboriginal legal centres do to assist.

This special event in Law Week is open to all members, non-members, law students, local community groups, lawyers and those with an interest in Aboriginal issues.

For enquiries, please call the membership team on (08) 9324 8692 or email membership@lawsocietywa.asn.au.
