In 2024, the lecture is “Critical Legal Juxtapositions: Practice and Decision-Making”, delivered by Professor Val Napoleon (University of Victoria, Canada).

2024 Lecture

Critical Legal Juxtapositions: Practice and Decision-Making

What happens when we rethink state legal decision-making regarding Indigenous lands through the practical application of the laws of an Indigenous legal order? This talk is intended to support learning about ways of approaching, understanding and working with substantive Indigenous laws through reimagined legal processes and decision-making. A focus will be placed on introducing perspectives, principles, and practices that can help think through questions and issues that arise when engaging with Indigenous laws. There is much work to build needed public and state intersocietal legal capacities – what are the steps?
