Migration & Refugee Law

Migration and refugee law concerns the movement of people to and from Australia for reasons including permanent residency, work, study and leisure and those seeking asylum.

The LIV’s Administrative Law and Human Rights Section has a Migration Law Committee and Refugee Law Reform Committee.

The Migration Law Committee comprises many experienced immigration lawyers, who are also registered migration agents, working in various areas of immigration law, including refugee, business, skilled and family migration. It initiates continuing legal education seminars, events and publications and prepares and makes submissions on migration law issues.

The Refugee Law Reform Committee uses the legal expertise of its members to stand up for justice and seek legal change for asylum seekers and detainees. Through the Committee, members can have a voice on law reform or gain important information from Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection the Administrative Appeals Tribunal, or the Minister about changes in the area. The Committee also has an education and information sharing function, able to engage the broader community on refugee issues.

The LIV offers Immigration Law as an area of specialisation.
