About the conference
Declining trust in public institutions is increasingly a feature of the democratic landscape. Community engagement is advocated as a key strategy in rebuilding community confidence. ‘Engagement’, however, covers a wide array of approaches, often without articulating specific measurable outcomes.
This timely conference will be an evidence-led strategic conversation about how we reinforce public trust and confidence in the legal system, especially the courts, tribunals, regulatory bodies and commissions.
Information Exchange Gallery
The Information Exchange Gallery (IEG) expo will run throughout the conference, showcasing best-practice examples of, and resources created to promote, community engagement. Exhibitors will share their existing programs with an emphasis not only on the 'what' (nature and content of their programs), but also on the 'who' (target audience/publics), 'when' (timing/staging) and 'how' (methods/approaches).
Exhibitors will be invited to share the challenges and lessons of their programs.
