2019: True Crime NT – Murder et al

Poster and fabric design: Chips Mackinolty

Check your passport, book your flights – come back to CLANT’s ever growing, ever popular criminal law conference.

The 17th biennial CLANT Bali conference will be held from Saturday 22 June to Friday 29 June 2019,  with a return to CLANT’s spiritual home –

The Hyatt Regency Sanur formerly the Bali Hyatt!

 

Having found its place in popular culture, ‘true crime’ is again on the agenda, with, of course a distinctive Territorian twist and a focus on the practical aspects of criminal law.

This conference takes you behind the scenes and will introduce you to the major players in some of Australia and the NT’s most high profile cases.

Through practical based papers we will explore the legal skills, arguments and techniques that have helped to shape criminal jurisprudence and folklore.

This conference is a must for all who practice in criminal law, with a focus on developing practical skills to assist junior and senior advocates alike.

The key note address will be delivered by George Georgiou SC, a friend to the Territory and former CLANT committee member. George led the defence team in the mammoth re-trial – and ultimate acquittal – of David Eastman, charged with the murder of Australian Federal Police Assistant Commissioner Colin Winchester.

The conference promises to be our biggest yet and will host our usual events including the ever impressive ‘Bali players’ performing a new production, written and directed by life member Rex Wild QC.

Please save the dates, mark your diaries and book in your leave for what will be a fun, practical and educational week of networking amongst friends, colleagues and old sparring partners.
