  • Episode 17 : Jill Prior

Jill Prior is a criminal lawyer who has served as the principal legal officer at the Victorian Aboriginal Legal Service and is now cofounder of the Law and Advocacy Centre for Women. Despite being a natural advocate as a child and student, Jill never planned on a Life in the Law. But after a seminal experience supporting a friend in a sexual assault case, Jill realised that the courtroom and its procedures just made sense to her - and was where she wanted to work.
