Kimberley rising: radical remoteness and radical clinical pedagogy

Justice and access to justice are radically remote from the lives of Aboriginal people in the Kimberley region in Western Australia. The chronic under-resourcing of non-profit legal services in the Kimberley is part of this picture. Kimberley rising is a story of how relationships can bridge many forms of distance. Of how a non-profit legal service in the Kimberley, in trying to increase its resources, is re-radicalizing its potential and also generating a radical clinical counter-pedagogy, based on service, within the ANU College of Law. Kimberley rising is a story of striving against the odds, in the hope of justice.
