Lawyers and barristers

Lawyers and barristers are urgently needed!

Are you a lawyer or barrister? Do you know someone who is legally qualified? There is a great need in the greater Brisbane region for pro-bono legal support for asylum seekers and refugees. In particular there are asylum seekers in the Brisbane region who are going through the process of claiming refugee status and are being forced to look interstate for representation, or in some cases are putting forward appeals or appearing in court unrepresented, making their chances of success very low.

If you are able to offer some pro-bono support, please contact the Principal Legal Officer at RAILS.

Alternatively you can contact QPILCH through your firm or the MAS on the Gold Coast.
