Our Board

The Australian Lawyers Alliance is made up of lawyers, academics and professionals from all over Australia. We are a company limited by guarantee.

The organisation is overseen by a National Council, consisting of an elected board of directors representing each state and territory across Australia. Directors serve a two-year term, with half the state/territory branches holding an election each year.

Every year, the National President, who is the public face of the organisation, is elected in May, and serves for a one year term: from 1 July to the end of June in the following year.

From 1 July 2016, the National President of the Australian Lawyers Alliance is Tony Kenyon.
