In developing the program the idea emerged that if we are to see real change in increasing the numbers of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people within the legal profession we need a strong partnership across the legal system and the community.  The program is therefore based on a partnership approach.

Whilst the North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency (NAAJA) coordinates the program, we emphasise a partnership approach and the organising of resources and input from across the legal system.  

In the last two years we are appreciative of the financial support provided by the Public Purpost Trust of the Law Society NT and Prime Minister and Cabinet.
