Our lawyers at Justice Centre work to ensure that the most marginalised members of Hong Kong society – refugees, and victims of torture, human trafficking and forced labour – have the necessary legal information, support and representation to access protection and remedies in Hong Kong.
We provide tailored and dedicated support to migrants who experience unique challenges due to gender, sexuality, sexual orientation, age, race or ethnicity, statelessness and/or other characteristics.
In order to ensure that those who need it most have the best possible chance of a successful outcome, we undertake a rigorous screening process and prioritise the most vulnerable.
Our legal services and screening process are delivered in conjunction with social welfare and counselling services to enable our clients to attain the highest possible levels of physical and mental well-being.
Our Justice Centre lawyers work in partnership with pro bono lawyers, duty lawyers and legal aid lawyers to deliver accessible and quality legal services.
Our approach to casework and litigation is responsive and strategic. Through our legal services, we are committed to securing protection and remedies for as many refugees and forced migrants as possible.
Collaboration is at the heart of our working model.
Our work is made possible through our partnerships with leading law firms.
Our pro bono partners donate invaluable time and resources to support our small in-house team of public interest lawyers.
Our Justice Centre team provides training and technical assistance to pro bono lawyers, duty lawyers and legal aid lawyers, who are representing claimants in the USM process, subsequent judicial review applications and other related proceedings (including legal aid applications, and civil claims to challenge unlawful detention.).
We also partner with local and international universities. Our clinical legal education programme trains and engages future generations of human rights lawyers and advocates.
