Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Legal Service (Qld) Ltd is a non-profit, community-based Aboriginal organisation that is the leading provider of legal services to Queensland Aboriginal people in the areas of criminal, civil and family law. NATSILS is the governing body for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Legal Services, representing services in all states and territories of Australia. NATSILS provides legal advice, support, representation, community legal education, advocacy, law reform activities and prisoner care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in contact with the justice system.

Before requesting atsils` assistance to represent more than one legally supported co-respondent, it conducts its own internal procedure (granting of assistance (by LAQ) to more than one co-respondent). A copy of the ATSILS internal authorisation must be attached to the aid application. The National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Legal Service (NATSILS) is concerned that any additional funding for mutual legal assistance services or senior judicial authorities could result in a disproportionate over-representation of our people in the criminal justice system. Legal Aid Queensland works with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Legal Service to provide legal assistance to eligible Indigenous peoples. If an application for legal aid is received by ATSILS on behalf of a client and the lawyer is approved, the granting of the aid will be returned to ATSILS, unless otherwise specified. We work with the mutual legal assistance sector, national coalitions such as Change the Record and the Coalition of Aboriginal Peak Bodies and coordinate ATSILS can represent the plaintiff or defendant at a family dispute resolution conference at Legal Aid Queensland. The provision of legal assistance to ATSILS to represent clients at conferences on the resolution of family disputes in legal aid provides access to the dispute resolution service. This is not a grant for which legal counsel is available or provided, and there is no fee. CAALAS provides legal advice and representation to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in Central Australia, as well as legal education in the community.
