Lawyers migrate to new group


Cite as: (2003) 77(9) LIJ, p.17

A new immigration lawyers group has been formed to increase awareness about migration issues, including lobbying for better migration laws and policies throughout the Asia/Pacific region.

The Immigration Lawyers Association of Australasia (ILAA) had its Melbourne launch on 18 July, where it outlined its functions and goals.

Among them will be to provide a united voice when conducting events to promote immigration and human rights issues, including better migration laws and policies.

The ILAA will also provide specialisation and training programs to help immigration lawyers deliver better services to their clients.

The group has received the support of the Law Institute, the Law Society of New South Wales, the Auckland Law Society and the International Bar Association.

Two Victorian lawyers are members of the inaugural ILAA committee – Institute councilor Erskine Rodan and Gadens Lawyers partner Maria Jockel.
