New human rights statutes, anti-discrimination and equal opportunity law all continue to shape how governments act, how legislation is formed and how businesses operate.

Australia is already subject to a number of global human rights treaties. The High Court has been willing to find 'implied rights' in the Constitution and support is growing for a national bill of rights. This has all created a significant – and growing – need for human rights legal advice.

We provide advice on:

  • Rights compatibility in the development of legislation and regulations
  • Compliance
  • Compliance programs and training
  • Human rights risks in public-private contracts
  • Litigation on human rights issues
