We change people's lives by helping them get visas for themselves and their families, reversing visa cancellations, and appealing refusal decisions.
In the past financial year, we represented 602 people before the Department of Home Affairs, the Administrative Appeals Tribunal, the Immigration Assessment Authority, and the Federal Court. We also provided 1687 advices on migration and family law matters in our West End office and, as part of our commitment to broaden access to justice, we gave 1031 advices in person to people at Woolloongabba and Indooroopilly, as well as in Toowoomba, Cairns, Townsville, Logan, and Goodna, as well as many advices by telephone.
Our clients have often experienced family violence, are at risk of homelessness, or fear returning to their country of origin.
In our commitment to legal education, we provided 12 Continuing Professional Development sessions to lawyers and migration agents. We presented 40 legal education sessions to schools, community workers, and community groups about migration law and on general legal topics including criminal and consumer law, police, family law, domestic violence, and conflict resolution.
We continued to fight for justice for all by contributing to migration policy and law reform.
