We are delighted with the success of the recent AIJA conference, Justice for Young People: Identifying challenges and finding solutions for youth and children’s justice in Australia and New Zealand which was held at the
Rendezvous Hotel Melbourne, 8 – 9 November 2019.

The conference explored the latest and most pressing problems in the highly complex area of youth justice, and how can the various courts and tribunals of Australia’s juvenile justice system work together to provide a more effective and responsive youth justice system for all young people, including Indigenous, African and Pacific Islander youth?

Judicial officers, lawyers, police, medical experts, psychologists and social scientists from around Australia convened to discuss these issues at the Australasian Institute of Judicial Administration’s conference on youth justice, held on November 8-9 at Melbourne’s Rendezvous Hotel.

Thank you to our conference sponsors, Journal Technologies, Tyler Technologies and Anglicare Victoria.

We hope to see you at future conferences hosted by the AIJA.
