About this event

Like other public agencies, local councils are faced with the growing prevalence of pseudo law – in part through the sovereign citizens movement but from elsewhere.  Dr Young will offer some research-based perspectives on the underpinnings of the world view and some insights for councils around interacting with those who advance such theories safety.

Who should attend? Professionals in rates, regulation, democracy services, engagement, or anyone likely to interact with pseudo-lawyers, sovereign citizens, or community sheriffs. Elected members are also encouraged to participate.
