Law Stories filming

‘Law Stories’

NAAJA CLE team has recently collaborated on an innovative filmmaking internship with ABC Open, Clontarf and Darwin high school students to produce a short documentary – ‘Law Stories’ – focusing on youth and the criminal justice system. The students and the CLE team worked together to develop ideas for the film and conducted interviews with various justice workers. The students produced an excellent documentary, which gave the boys a greater understanding of the youth justice system and a unique insight into possible career opportunities in the both journalism and the law. The project was such a success that a 3 minute version of the film was screened nationally on Behind the News!

You can see the “Behind the News” report here:
the full version of ‘Law Stories’ is available on the ABC Open website:
