23 B A L A N C E M A R C H 2 0 1 8 Bilata Road Show: 512 November 2017 A group of Aboriginal lawyers and law students embarked on the Bilata Road Show. The route was from Darwin through to Alice Springs and then back to Darwin. The aim was to inspire and encourage people in regional areas, particularly high school students, who may have an interest in pursuing law. This was the first road show of its kind. The visits in Katherine, Tennant Creek and Alice Springs were to: connect Aboriginal youth and mature aged students with role models and stories from Aboriginal lawyers and law students about their experiences and pathways to studying law; provide information about the program and encourage applications from ATSI high school students, university students and other adult participants interested in studying law; and to connect participants with opportunities and supports to assist their aspirations to study law. In each town we held an evening event where we encouraged Aboriginal youth or adults who may be interested in studying law to attend and talk about the program. This was also an opportunity to encourage Indigenous people from remote and regional areas in the towns we visited to apply for sponsorship to attend the program days and the official launch of the program. Thank you to the Law Society Public Purposes Trust for sponsoring the event. B A L A N C E M A R C H 2 0 1 8
