Refugee and Asylum Seeker Project

Attention new applicants

Due to funding constraints, JusticeNet’s Refugee and Asylum Seeker Project is not accepting new applications for pro bono assistance until further notice.

Please check here again for future updates - we will provide an update by no later than 30 June 2019.

If you have already applied for assistance, your application will continue to be processed unless you are informed otherwise.

The Refugee and Asylum Seeker Project (RASP) is a specialist legal referral service for asylum seekers who have made a claim for protection under the Refugee Convention and are resident in South Australia.

How the Service can help

JusticeNet coordinates free legal help for refugees and asylum seekers who are applying for judicial review. We will obtain a legal opinion about an applicant's situation and, where there is sufficient legal merit, we will endeavour to refer applicants for representation in the Federal Circuit Court or Federal Court.
