For those who came here seeking safety from war and persecution, our legal system is their only hope for protection.
But instead of protecting people and upholding their basic human rights, our system is intentionally too complex, unfair and deliberately designed to break people and send them back to danger.
Without adequate legal support to navigate the long and arduous asylum process, people’s claims for protection often fail. In many cases the decision to deny a person asylum is a decision between life and death.
Right now, thousands of people seeking asylum in Australia are being denied the right to live safely here. What is happening is wrong.
The only way people’s rights can be upheld is with the help of a good lawyer.
Our lawyers are the last line of defence for already vulnerable people, fighting in the courts to help:
* prevent unfair visa cancellations
* protect families and children from deportation
* uphold justice and protect people’s basic human rights to safety and freedom
