With the help of our members we have helped thousands of vulnerable and disadvantaged clients gain access to justice. Here is one example of the power of pro bono.
Hope for Refugees
The plight of refugees seeking protection in Europe from violence and persecution has shocked the global community in recent months. Images of men, women and children fleeing conflict, and the tragic consequences for some, have touched our humanity.
“We are thankful that you have such great quality lawyers volunteering for JusticeNet who have been such a good support for us. We are so grateful.”
In South Australia, JusticeNet helps those seeking asylum to exercise their rights under Australian law. With our help, 75% of our clients have demonstrated that decisions being made about their cases – and their future - are legally flawed. Given the awful consequences of a wrong decision – deportation back to the country from which they fled persecution – the work undertaken by our network of pro bono lawyers is of vital importance.
