Policy Development

Policy Development

OKT advises clients on the development and implementation of legislation and policy in areas including land and resource development and control, energy, employment and labour, human rights, child welfare, education, land claims implementation and other matters.

OKT has particular experience in assisting clients with stakeholder engagement and consultation processes with northern and isolated Indigenous communities, for the purpose of consulting on public policy development. Our lawyers are skilled at understanding how best to access or structure opportunities for meaningful engagement with Indigenous people living in isolated communities and for whom English is not their first language.
