Reconciliation Action Plan

The Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) for the NSW Bar Association commenced on 1 January 2013 and continues the Association’s previous efforts and provides a structure for the objectives with the overall aim of contributing to reconciliation through three key areas of relationships, respect and opportunities. The primary goal of the RAP is to increase the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander barristers practising at the NSW Bar. The objective of the photography competition is to inject some creativity and some fun into depictions of ways that could increase Indigenous representation.

If you have any questions regarding the RAP or the Indigenous Barristers Trust The Mum Shirl Fund, please contact Megan Black at

Enjoy viewing the photos!
