The New South Wales Society of Labor Lawyers aims to promote changes in the substantive and procedural law, the administration of justice, the legal profession, legal services, legal aid and legal education to help bring about a more just and equitable society. The Society provides a meeting ground for people involved in the law who believe in Labor principles of fairness, social justice, equal opportunity, compassion and community.

Bringing together progressive lawyers, barristers, law students, and legal academics.

The Society was originally established in 1977. In its earlier years, it played an important role in developing progressive legal policy and was closely aligned with the Australian Society of Labor Lawyers. After a period of respite, the Society was revived in 2011 and builds on that tradition of progressive scholarship and advocacy in NSW.
