Review of the National Agreement on Closing the Gap
The Law Council is grateful for the opportunity to provide input to the Productivity Commission’s Review of the National Agreement on Closing the Gap (the review).
The Law Council has long supported the Closing the Gap framework. It particularly welcomed the inclusion of Socioeconomic Outcomes linked to the justice sector, which were added to the refreshed National Agreement on Closing the Gap (the National Agreement) in July 2020.
The Law Council acknowledges the assistance of its Indigenous Legal Issues Committee and Young Lawyers Committee, the Law Society of New South Wales, the New South Wales Bar Association, the Queensland Law Society, the Law Institute of Victoria, and the Law Society of South Australia, in the preparation of the submission.
