First Nations Lawyer

Are you an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander person who wants to help First Nations communities in Victoria to care for Country? We’re starting a new program that builds on our work with First Nations peoples, using environmental law to protect Aboriginal interests.

You will work closely with First Nations individuals, organisations and communities to understand their legal needs and work with them to overcome the legal barriers that stop First Nations peoples from exercising their caring for Country rights and obligations.
