2024 Conference: Smart on Crime.
Tough. Soft. Smart on Crime.
22 – 28 June 2024 | Hyatt Regency, Bali
We are honoured to have Queensland Supreme Court Justice Lincoln Crowley KC as our keynote speaker.
The Honourable Justice Lincoln Crowley holds a Bachelor of Laws from James Cook University, a Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice from the Queensland University of Technology and a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Political Science, from the University of New England. He was admitted to practice in Queensland in 1997. His first role after admission was as a solicitor with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Legal Service, initially in Townsville and then later in Brisbane. After several years he moved to New South Wales, where worked as a senior solicitor within the New South Wales Crown Solicitor’s Office, and later was called to the Sydney private bar. There he practised in both civil and criminal fields before returning to the public sector as In-House Counsel with the Sydney Office of the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions. After several years in that role his Honour returned to Queensland to take up a position as a Principal Crown Prosecutor for the Queensland Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, before finally settling into practise at the Queensland private bar, where he specialised in crime and all areas of public law for many years. In 2018, his Honour became the first Indigenous person appointed as Queen’s Counsel in and for the State of Queensland. On 13 June 2022, Justice Crowley was sworn in as a judge of the Supreme Court of Queensland, becoming the first Indigenous judge appointed to a superior court in Australia.
Our committee is currently working hard to finalise an amazing line-up of speakers.
