Referendum for an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice - LCA Guide and Factsheets
Further to the Media release sent to members of the Society on 13 July 2023, the Law Council of Australia (LCA) has produced a Guide and Fact sheets to the Legal Profession.
The Guide to the Legal Profession contains:
- the origins of the proposal to amend the Constitution to provide for the Voice:
- the compelling case for a Voice which underpins the LCA’s position of full and unqualified support;
- an analysis of the proposed constitutional amendment; and
- comprehensive responses to concerns commonly raised with respect to the Voice.
The Factsheets provide information on the referendum process generally; the proposed amendment to the Constitution to provide for the Voice; frequently asked questions regarding the Voice and the rationale for the LCA support for the Voice.
The Guide and Factsheets attached and have been produced by the LCA to assist interested legal practitioners and members of the general public.
