Refugee and Asylum Seeker Project

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 want to apply 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.

JusticeNet will also refer applicants for legal advice and representation concerning other refugee law matters on a case-by-case basis.

For more information about RASP download an Information Sheet (from Key Downloads box on this page).

How to apply

If you, or your client, has received an adverse decision form the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (either the Immigration Assessment Authority or the Migration and Refugee Division) or the former Refugee Review Tribunal, you can contact us on (08) 8313 5005.

You can also download an application form (see Key Downloads on this page) or contact us and we will send one to you.

Applications can be sent to JusticeNet at the address below. Please note that before we can make a referral we will require certain documentation that is described in the application form.
