Free CPD – Positive Duties with Associate Professor Dominique Allen

In partnership with the Anti-Discrimination Commission and the Law Society Northern Territory. Associate Professor Dominique Allen will be delivering a CPD to the profession addressing positive duty in the Northern Territory.

The last few years have seen significant changes to anti-discrimination laws throughout Australia. Governments have acknowledged that an approach which tackles discrimination on an individualised basis, once unfavourable treatment has already occurred, will not address ongoing, systemic disadvantage in society. Instead, a proactive approach is needed.
In this seminar, Dominque will discuss the operation of positive duties, focusing on the Northern Territory, and consider how positive duties have the potential to overcome the limitations of traditional anti-discrimination laws.


Date: Tuesday, 26 March 2024
