The Law and Justice Advocacy Development (LJAD) program is a small grant program administered by the Attorney-General’s Department (AGD). The program supports the advancement of the legal rights of Indigenous Australians by funding groups to pursue advocacy, research and community-level education. It provides funding for a range of activities that promote improved law and justice outcomes for Indigenous Australians. Funding is allocated in accordance with LJAD’s program guidelines to activities including Aboriginal Justice Advisory Committees, Deaths in Custody Monitoring Units and research. The objectives of this evaluation were to assess the effectiveness of the LJAD program and the efficiency of AGD’s funding and monitoring arrangements.
