David Woodroffe guest speaker for the Bilata Legal Pathways Program

On 9th December 2016 the President of WRNT David Woodroffe spoke to participants of the Bilata Legal Pathways Program about his motivation to study law and embark on a career pathway leading to his current role as Principal Legal Officer of the North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency.

In his talk David also shared some personal insight into how the justice system involves Aboriginal people and issues and some practical skills for engaging Aboriginal people in the court environment. As one of the first set of Aboriginal lawyers to study law in the NT and engage in legal practice David's contribution was greatly appreciated and as a valued experience for participants who are interested or currently studying law.
