Arts Law welcomed the opportunity to submit a response to the Law Council of Australia's Justice Project consultation paper.
The Arts Law Centre of Australia (Arts Law) welcomes the opportunity to contribute to the discussion on the growing presence of inauthentic Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ‘style’ art and craft products and merchandise for sale across Australia.
