Murri Court re-launched in Brisbane

Many of the ATSILS team were present at the re-launch of the Murri Court in Brisbane this afternoon. It was great atmosphere and held in the spirit of celebration and mutual respect. The ATSILS team mixed with many familiar faces and it was great to share the experience with elders and other dignitaries from government, community and across the legal fraternity.

Murri Court is an important aspect in creating a more culturally responsive justice system and provides magistrates with the opportunity to use diversionary programs to enhance the rehabilitation of offenders. Justice alternatives such as Murri Court that engage local community are critical in addressing the over-representation of our people in the criminal justice system and we welcome its formal re-introduction across the state.
