The Koori Court: Culturally appropriate and inclusive sentencing

The Koori Court plays an essential role in providing a culturally appropriate and inclusive sentencing option for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander offenders who have taken responsibility for a crime. It’s been running in the Magistrates’ Court of Victoria for 20 years and involves informal court hearings held around a table where those involved take part in a sentencing conversation.

So what does a magistrate consider when sentencing in the Koori Court? What role do Koori Court officers, Elders and Respected Persons play in the process? Join the Koori Court’s Supervising Magistrate Rose Falla and representatives from the Koori Court team to learn more about the court’s vital role.
