This position is an outstanding opportunity to take on a respected leadership role in the Northern Territory legal sector.

The Northern Territory Legal Aid Commission is an independent statutory authority established under the Legal Aid Act 1990.

The Director is appointed by the Attorney-General and has overall responsibility for carrying out the decisions of the Commission and management of the service of the Commission.
