Public Interest Law Careers Guide - asylum seekers
Asylum seekers are some of the most vulnerable people in our community. They often face daunting legal procedures and live with the threat of repatriation if their claims are rejected. Even after people are granted asylum, they often struggle with language, access to services, health, legal issues and adjustment to life in a different culture. Ways to help asylum seekers include legal casework, advocacy, law reform, research and assisting with administration of asylum seeker organisations.
