    AALA is thrilled to announce the launch of the inaugural AALA National Summit. The AALA National Summit will be held entirely online via Zoom and is free for all members and the wider community.

    The AALA National Summit is bringing together leading international thinkers, comedians and performers to critically examine and discuss a road map for Cultural Diversity in the Law.

    The AALA National Summit has four key pillars: 

    • 1.      The role of cultural leadership in the legal industry and the wider community.
    • 2.      The need to improve access to the law for culturally and linguistically diverse communities.
    • 3.      Reform of the judicial appointment process in Australia.
    • 4.      The strength and value in pursuing further collaboration between culturally and linguistically diverse lawyer associations and the wider legal industry.

    Who is this Summit for? AALA is throwing its doors wide open to the entire community and is giving all people, including students, policy-makers and practitioners, a chance to watch and participate in this conversation. This AALA National Summit is ideal for those who actively work in the legal industry in roles of management, human resourcing and reform and equally for those people who work in the wider community to promote and advocate for intersectional diversity and equal access to justice. The AALA National Summit is an ideal opportunity to expand your networks and ability to forge change.
