Criminology Grant Award

Researchers from the Centre for Law and Justice have been successful in the latest Criminology Grant Scheme funded by the Australian Institute of Criminology. Associate Professor Emma Colvin and law lecturer and Indigenous academic Jen Hartley have been awarded $72k with colleagues from the University of Tasmania to examine challenges for legal defence for Indigenous clients seeking bail. The project aims to examine how ancillary and support programs, particularly Indigenous led organisations, can provide support to address bail risks and how legal defence teams may work more closely with these organisations for strengths based outcomes for Indigenous clients.
