Lawyer urges justice diversion for Indigenous youth

By Siobhan Ryan

David Woodroffe, Principal Legal Officer for the North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency (NAAJA), says diverting Aboriginal children away from the criminal justice system must be the priority of Northern Territory legal reform.

Child protection was David’s main motivation for entering the legal field, as his father and grandmother were both part of the stolen generation.

“For many Aboriginal lawyers, their family’s history is really what drives them to go into the law,” David said.
