The Law Society’s Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is a commitment to the vision of:

  • a legal profession where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander law students, graduates and practitioners feel valued and respected
  • a community in which members understand and show respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, through building relationships and laying the foundation for increased opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples

The RAP programme is a development of Reconciliation Australia, designed to build respectful relationships and create sustainable opportunities for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.

The Law Society’s Reconciliation Action Plan was developed by the RAP Working Group, in consultation with the Indigenous Legal Issues Committee. Reconciliation Australia also provided guidance and assistance throughout the process. The Law Society’s RAP has been endorsed by, and is registered with, Reconciliation Australia.
