Statement on Gaza conflict  

The Law Society of NSW is made up of solicitor members whose backgrounds span the globe, including within the Israeli and Palestinian communities. Our thoughts are particularly with members impacted by the present hostilities in the Middle East.

As a constituent member of the Law Council of Australia, the Law Society endorses its statement on the conflict in Israel and the Palestinian territories.

All solicitors in NSW, whether a member of the Law Society or not, are able to access the Solicitors Outreach Service at any time, day or night. Psychologists are available to provide crisis counselling, with solicitors able to access three free psychology counselling sessions a year. Details on how to access this service can be found here.
