Levitt Robinson has one of the leading human rights and pro bono programs in Australia, outmatching the programs of much larger firms with far greater resources.
We know that the practice of law is more than just a profession, and our lawyers are specially selected for their strong social consciences and their drive and desire to improve the world around them.
Our team includes leading experts on all aspects of human rights laws, and we pride ourselves on not only practising the law, but helping to shape it through our blog posts, policy papers, submissions to government, and other advocacy/lobbying.
What we offer
We pursue human rights cases in state administrative tribunals, and state and Federal courts, as well as in the Australian Human Rights Commission and other such bodies. Our cases have gone to the High Court of Australia and beyond, including to international tribunals.

- common law rights and civil liberties;
- employee/workers’ rights;
- Indigenous rights and land title;
- international criminal law;
- international human rights law;
- migrant/refugee rights;
- property rights;
