Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice referendum


The Council of the Law Society of NSW has resolved unanimously to support the proposal to enshrine an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice in the Australian Constitution.

The President of the Law Society of NSW Cassandra Banks said a statement embodying Council’s decision is available on the Law Society website.

“The Law Society has also published on its website and on LSJ Online, additional material about the referendum and the issues it raises, to inform its members as well as the wider community,” Ms Banks said.

Ms Banks said Council’s statement acknowledges the diversity of opinion in the community, and within the Law Society’s membership, on this important matter, and notes that all Australians will have the opportunity to express their view when asked to vote on the Referendum.
