TRLS addresses an access-to-justice gap that manifests from the unique circumstances of refugees, asylum seekers & other humanitarian entrants into the Tasmanian community.

Tasmanian Refugee Legal Service

Volunteer With Us

Our organisation thrives on the support and generosity of its volunteers.

Join Our Volunteers Service

Many of our volunteers are lawyers in busy practices who make their time available for the benefit of those who are disadvantaged in our community. Volunteering with TRLS is not only personally satisfying but also an opportunity to work alongside some of Tasmania’s best legal minds.

Our volunteers are mostly lawyers, migration agents or law students, but we welcome and encourage volunteers with any background or experience who can assist with the provision of our services to apply to TRLS.

To register your interest as to become a volunteer please email your CV and a summary of your capacity to info@trls.org.au

Our Volunteers

TRLS has expanded its volunteer program to over 40 volunteers across the State.

The majority of the volunteers are law students at UTAS, and the service is providing a valuable platform for Tasmanian Law students to learn and develop their skills in Humanitarian Law. We thank each and every volunteer who has donated their time to the service, each hour of volunteering has made a significant difference to the lives of our clients.
