Webinar Series: Courting Power – Law, Democracy & the Public Interest in AUS, Isabelle Reinecke

November 14, 2023

Past Events

A healthy legal system is fundamental to democracy. All Australians should be able to rely on the courts to keep the powers that be accountable, but what pernicious forces seek to undermine this?

In Courting Power, Isabelle Reinecke, founder of Grata Fund, Australia’s first strategic litigation funder and incubator, takes us through the trials and triumphs of some of the public interest cases she has helped bring about—from one launched by Torres Strait Islanders to establish the federal government’s duty of care regarding climate change, to a High Court case on remote housing rights in the Northern Territory, and Doctors for Refugees’ successful challenge to government gag laws, among others.


Recorded on the 1st of November 2023, hosted by Per Capita’s Emma Dawson.
