About the role

The Law and Justice Foundation of NSW is an independent, research focussed organisation. We undertake high quality applied social research and analysis to identify the legal and related needs of the community and ‘what works’ to address these needs, to inform policy development and service delivery. The Foundation has established a reputation for rigorous and policy-relevant work that is relied upon nationally and globally.

The Foundation works actively with government and all parts of the legal assistance sector (including Legal Aid Commissions, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Legal Services, and Community Legal Centres) and the broader justice system to inform policy and support the planning and delivery of effective legal assistance services.

The Foundation’s research program involves innovative social research across a range of themes, including:

  • Population level surveys of legal need, pathways and barriers to meet these needs, and vulnerabilities of different communities
  • Identifying and using legal service and official (including Australian Bureau of Statistics) data to understand legal needs and how they can be met effectively.
  • Exploring how legal services can most effectively collaborate with each other and connect with other human services to best reach priority clients
  • Monitoring and evaluating services to assess how they can most cost-effectively meet the needs of disadvantaged clients in various geographic, socio-economic and service environments.

With a number of exciting project ideas the Foundation now wishes to recruit several new members to its well-respected research team. This is an opportunity to make a valuable contribution to the justice system in NSW. Positions available include:
