“Appointing a patron was an important step toward ensuring the future of NMLS,” said Khoi Cao-Lam, the executive officer of the NMLS. “We believe Justice Dixon’s involvement will assist in further raising the profile of the work we do and draw in more supporters, pro bono and philanthropic support.”

The NMLS is a not-for-profit community legal centre that promotes access to justice and the health and wellbeing of disadvantaged members of the community through the provision of free and accessible legal assistance, education and policy advocacy.
