From 1997 until her appointment in 2009, Rachel was a barrister at the NSW Bar. Her principal areas of practice were general commercial law and public law, including Aboriginal land rights. Rachel has long since held an interest in Indigenous legal issues, both civil and criminal. While at the Bar, she was the Co-coordinator of the Aboriginal Legal Service/NSW Bar Association Pro Bono Barrister Scheme. The scheme was established to permit barristers to voluntarily assist the Aboriginal Legal Service in defending accused Indigenous persons in criminal matters.

Come and join us for this talk, a light supper and a chance to meet and chat with everyone.
