ILAQ and AALA are committed to advancing cultural and linguistic diversity in the legal profession.  This is a rare opportunity for those working in the law to gain an insight into Indigenous cultural diversity and from a general, historical, and social perspective which can be used to improve their own practices and gain better outcomes for Indigenous clients.
