Applications are open for the Global Mobility Immigration Lawyers Scholarship 2018. The Global Mobility Immigration Lawyers Scholarship is an annual initiative, open to all students enrolled in a course of secondary, tertiary or post-graduate practical education/training. Each year students will be invited to explore issues touching on the intersection of immigration, law, social justice and multiculturalism.
The topic for the inaugural Global Mobility Immigration Lawyers Scholarship is: Immigration lawyers acting for asylum seekers are “unAustralian”. Respond.

Do what you do best. Whatever your skillset, impress the organizers with your legal scholarship, your passionate activism, or your wit and creativity.
