30 August 2012: Attorney-General Nicola Roxon and the Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy, Senator Stephen Conroy, have announced the first round of successful applicants to share NBN legal assistance partnerships.
“All Australians, no matter where they live, should have access to quality community legal services,” Ms Roxon said.
“Through this program, the NBN will help to build a digital bridge over the legal divide between regional and metropolitan Australia, helping to provide better community legal services.
“These grants will challenge applicants to identify innovative and collaborative ways of providing legal assistance and sharing knowledge more effectively with regional community legal services.”
