General membership is open to organisations.

General members are organisations who actively support the work of the Alliance.
The group includes organisations who:

  • Provide legal services to rural people, or support services for rural people interacting with the legal system; and/or
  • Are actively involved in research or scholarship in matters associated with the Principal Purpose; and/or
  • Represent rural people’s interests in relation to the legal systems or legal issues; and/or
  • Are professional associations that support or advocate for people providing legal services or people engaged with law and justice issues in rural areas.

Representatives of the Alliance Council are nominated by the members. This ensures the membership directs the work of the organisation. Anyone interested in nominating to the 20 member Alliance Council should complete the Membership form indicating their interest in joining the Council and fax or email to the address indicated on the form.

It is a requirement that all members adhere to the National Rural Law & Justice Alliance Constitution. Please read the Alliance’s Constitution [412KB PDF] prior to completing a membership application.
