Justice Centre Fellows are provided with a valuable opportunity to work as part of our Protection Claimant Services Team or Policy and Research Team. Our staff are international – with a wide-ranging expertise in public law representing refugees, working in multiple jurisdictions and engaging in international forums.
The positions were created to develop public interest law capacity in Hong Kong, while contributing to the provision of Justice Centre’s individual claimant services, the development of policy change in Hong Kong and the operation of Justice Centre’s pro bono partner programme.
“The past year has been the most enriching of my career. As Justice Centre Fellow, I have had the opportunity to learn from experienced refugee lawyers and leading practitioners from around the world protecting the rights of forced migrants. As a qualified Australian lawyer with a background in corporate and immigration law, the position of Justice Centre Fellow provided the stepping stone I needed to make the leap from the corporate sector to the field of refugee protection.”
– Lynette Nam, Justice Centre Fellow 2015-2016
