Taylah Gray

About me

Based In


Meet Taylah Gray, a warm-hearted and dedicated Wiradjuri woman from Dubbo, NSW. With a passion for justice and a deep connection to her Aboriginal culture, Taylah's journey has been one of empowerment and advocacy.

Having previously worked as a criminal defence lawyer with the Aboriginal Legal Service Ltd, Taylah has first hand experience in the legal justice sector, specialising in an impressive range of 12 areas of law. Her commitment to making a difference led her to become the first Indigenous person to pursue a PhD in Law at the esteemed University of Newcastle.

Taylah's research focuses on Native Title and land reform, aiming to bring positive change to First Nations communities across Australia. As a Sessional Academic at the University of Newcastle, she also imparts her knowledge in Aboriginal Tertiary Studies through an alternative entry program.

Beyond her academic pursuits, Taylah's warm spirit shines through her love for reading, learning, and the beauty of nature. She cherishes moments of laughter shared with her cherished family and friends, while savouring the pleasure of a good meal.

Taylah's unwavering dedication to civil rights has earned her both national and international recognition. In July 2020, she captured public attention by successfully challenging a Supreme Court prohibition order, preventing the Commissioner of Police from banning a peaceful protest within the Newcastle region. Her courageous stand reflects her role as a vocal proponent of Treaty and a fierce advocate for the rights of First Nations people and civil liberties. In 2023 Taylah was awarded NSW Woman Lawyer of the year from the Women's Lawyer Association in NSW. She has also been nominated for the incredibly prestigious International Visitor Leadership Program. A program inviting current and potential leaders from government, politics, the media, education, the arts, business and other key fields to experience the US first hand and cultivate lasting relationships with their American counterparts. Alumni of the program include more than 335 former Chiefs of State or Heads of Government, an incredibly prestigious nomination and acknowledgement of Taylah’s legacy.  

Here are some specific topics that Taylah can speak on:

  • The importance of defending civil rights and liberties
  • The nuances of Aboriginal culture and justice
  • The intricacies of Native Title and land reform
