Renewal and unity

In 2006, the coalition of six Aboriginal Legal Services in NSW and ACT came together to form a single organisation: the Aboriginal Legal Service (NSW/ACT) Limited. It was an opportunity for renewal and change, consolidating everyone's efforts to provide the most effective legal services possible.

As a company, the ALS is owned by the Aboriginal communities it works for. We are governed by an Aboriginal Board of Directors and led by an Aboriginal CEO. (Visit our governance page for more information.)

A unified ALS also strengthened the voices of Aboriginal communities in NSW and in the ACT, creating a stronger platform from which to advocate for law reform and to hold governments, police, prisons and other powerful people to account.
