Safety in the Family Court - ANROWS webinar

May 14, 2021 at 2:06 PM

From the NZFVC


Monday 24 May 2021


3-4.30pm, NZST (1-2.30pm, AEST)


Online (Australia based)





One of the major concerns that has arisen through the many new changes and initiatives taking place in the Family Court (in Australia) over the last year is how to keep women and children who have experienced domestic and family violence safe when they engage with the Court.

Register for this event

An expert panel will draw on their diverse experiences to offer insights into improving safety in the Family Court. The panel will discuss: what can we learn from what is working, what can we learn from what isn’t working, and where are the opportunities to build change? The discussion will be facilitated by Michele Robinson (ANROWS) with:

  • Dr Jane Wangmann (University of Technology Sydney)
  • Dr Rae Kaspiew (Australian Institute of Family Studies)
  • Tracey Turner (Domestic and Family Violence Specialist Worker (Aboriginal Focus), Sydney Women's Domestic Violence Court Advocacy Service)
  • Angela Lynch AM (Women’s Legal Service Qld)
  • Janet Carmichael (Child Dispute Services, FCA & FCCA)
  • Molly Dragiewicz (Griffith University).

There will also be a live Q&A. The webinar is open to anyone and free to attend, and a recording will be made available on the ANROWS website following the event.
