Manage episode 329475880 series 2647259
Tanya Heaslip’s childhood on an outback cattle station in Central Australia was full of adventures and extremes, so it’s no surprise that her first job as a lawyer was the same.
The job? Junior Instructing Solicitor for the Crown on the Lindy Chamberlain Inquiry – the inquiry which ultimately saw all convictions against Lindy Chamberlain quashed.
In this episode, Tanya speaks about her experience working on the Chamberlain inquiry and how it shaped her career as a lawyer.
We explore how Tanya’s upbring in the 1960s led her to choose a sensible career over her passions, and how she found the courage to follow her heart later on in life.
