The Youth Justice Forum – a joint initiative of RPI.QLD and Griffith University – brought together key stakeholders including government, the judiciary, academia, education, the police, and the legal profession to address the issue of youth justice in Queensland. Opened by the Attorney General, the Hon Yvette D’Ath, the Forum featured keynote addresses from Judge Andrew Beecroft – Principal Youth Court Judge NZ, Mr Rob Hulls – former Attorney-General of Victoria and Director of the Innovative Justice Research Centre, and Professor Pamela Snow – La Trobe University. Each keynote address was followed by roundtable dialogues, and the Forum was concluded with a panel discussion seeking a blueprint for the future of youth justice administration in Queensland.
