Refugee and Asylum Seekers

Attention new applicants: Updated 17 July 2019

JusticeNet’s Pro Bono Connect (formerly, the Refugee and Asylum Seeker Project) is currently accepting applications for pro bono legal assistance in refugee and asylum seeker matters. However, there have been some important changes to our application process. Please see below for further details on how to apply.

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.

How to apply to JusticeNet for assistance

If you, or your client, has received an adverse decision from the Administrative Appeals Tribunal or the Immigration Assessment Authority you can make an application to JusticeNet.
