Voice referendum Q&A

Join UNSW Law & Justice together with your student representatives, UNSW Law Society Presidents for a meaningful discussion with our speakers, Associate Professor Sean Brennan and Uluru Youth Dialogue Co-Chair, Bridget Cama.

This student audience will have the opportunity to pre-submit their questions ahead of a respectful, positive conversation about one of the key national events of our time. Our two speakers will explore the story behind Australia’s first referendum in more than 20 years. They will cover the debate so far and answer your questions about the upcoming vote about establishing an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice in the Australian Constitution. The objective is for audience members to gain insight into this significant event in Australian democracy that will involve all Australian voters playing their part.

Don't miss this important conversation.

*Please note: We welcome respectful pre-submitted questions from the audience and will endeavour to include as many as possible on the day; however, please note there is no guarantee we will be able to answer all in the limited time frame.

This event is held as part of the UNSW Law & Justice +Justice Festival in collaboration with UNSW Law Society
