From its beginnings in the early 1970s, the Aboriginal Legal Service of Western Australia has been influential in national campaigns to address the legacies of dispossession and human rights abuses. It continues to play a central role in advocating for measures to address Aboriginal deaths in custody, land rights and stolen generations, not just in WA but as issues of national significance. A lively and multi-dimensional account, Justice: A History of the Aboriginal Legal Service of Western Australia shows the human face of some of the nations major social, political and legal reforms of the last four decades. It is the story of people determined to protect and defend the human rights of those Australians whose rights have been routinely abused.
