Video Interview with Djirra CEO Antoinette Braybrook
The next guest in our video interview series for students is Antoinette Braybrook, the Chief Executive of Djirra
, and Convenor of the National Family Violence Prevention Legal Services Forum. Antoinette is an Australian leader in the fight against family violence and challenging the system that is imprisoning Aboriginal women at a much higher rate than the general population.
We asked Antoinette about how she came to the law, her student days, and her passion to make a difference for Aboriginal women. She told us:
“I’m an Aboriginal woman and these issues are very personal to me. I think that my legal training has probably given me some tools to be able to do that much better... I want to make a difference for Aboriginal women.”
We were also delighted with the excellent advice Antoinette shared with our law student viewers, but you’ll have to watch the video to find out what it is!
