The National Justice Project’s Refugee and Asylum Seeker work featured in legal journal “Court of Conscience”

Last Updated on 13/11/2019 by National Justice Project

Legal journal “Court of Conscience”, run by the University of NSW, has published an article by National Justice Project (NJP) Senior Solicitor Anna Talbot and Director George Newhouse about the impact of our strategic litigation in the area of refugee human rights.

Entitled ‘Strategic Litigation, Offshore Detention and the Medevac Bill’, the article delves into the successful wave of tort-based litigation which was based on the ground-breaking work done by the NJP in the case of Plaintiff S99/2016 v Minister for Immigration and Border Protection and the novel legal strategy which the NJP slowly built upon to assist refugees and asylum seekers to access critically-needed medical care and protect their human rights.
