Aboriginal & Torres Strait islander (ATSI) portfolio

In keeping with the spirit of Reconciliation, QUTLS acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the lands where QUT now stands, and recognise that these have always been places of teaching and learning. We wish to pay respect to their Elders - past, present and emerging - and acknowledge the important role Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people continue to play within the QUT community.

Our Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) Officer is here to promote the interests of Indigenous persons by engaging with Indigenous and non-Indigenous students in the Law School. 

For all ATSI questions, please email our ATSI Officer at atsi.officer@qutlawsociety.com
