The Law Society is committed to the national reconciliation movement. We have long been committed to promoting ‘good’ law, pushing to ensure that any new law reform proposal takes into account the effect on vulnerable groups such as the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander members of our community.
The Society is committed to promoting equality for all Australians and supporting reconciliation. We believe that lawyers can play a meaningful role in the reconciliation process as they are well placed to be catalysts for change.
Reconciliation Action Plan
The Law Society’s Inclusion and Diversity Committee produced the Society’s first ‘Reflect’ Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), which was launched in June 2018. The Law Society is reviewing the next steps for reconciliation initiatives for future RAPs.
