Who is the Summit for? 

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