Diversity & inclusion

Research shows that diversity in an organisation leads to more and better innovation, as well as improved financial performance. With that in mind, and in recognition of NAIDOC Week, members are reminded of the ways in which they can help to boost the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander practitioners at the NSW Bar:

  • Participate in the NSW Bar Association First Nations Law Student mentoring scheme as a mentor;
  • Employ a First Nations law student part-time to assist with chambers or research work; or
  • Donate to the Indigenous Barristers’ Trust dedicated to assist First Nations law students and lawyers overcome barriers to pursuing a career as a barrister in New South Wales.

Further details of the various ways you can provide support and assistance can be found here.
